Heres a brand new short doco on VMR  Mornington / Hastings. Victoria.

 

It is mostly based around Mornington in Port philip Bay , 

But we actually have a larger and even busier vessel in Western port that is not shown in the footage.

:-) We have coast guard too...

But we (VMR Mornington  / Hastings) are a completely separate organisation.

We dont do patrols or dress uniforms....

 

We are a rapid response Emergency service only.....Get the call....get there as quick as the situation dictates ...complete the task or tow, and go home. A bit like the old style English version...

We actually have 5 boats and have never refused a call out in our history.
