Motor Fishing Vessel Tacoma

Like much of Australia and the rest of the world, the Tacoma Preservation Society (TPS) put the MFV Tacoma into hibernation until the challenges of COVID-19 were sorted.

She has been tied up at her mooring at Sandy Point Drive in Port Lincoln.

The various charity days, charters and plans to slip the vessel during 2021/22 were slightly altered. The 2022 Tuna Poling Adventures and a number of early-year cruises have already been held.  Dates for the  2023 Tuna Poling Adventures have now been set and flyers produced.

If anyone is into rowing, don't forget the Tacoma's Rowing Group gathers every Wednesday (4:30-6:00pm) at the Tacoma berth.

Please keep healthy and safe and the very best wishes to you and your family.

Cheers me hearties,
Capt. Pugwash, Peter Jessep & the TPS Crew
