SDFSA President & Secretary (Hank van der Wijngaart & Steve Reynolds) both met up with DEH’s Amer Khan recently to discuss the future of DEH’s shipwreck mooring buoy program. They were concerned regarding the loss of mooring buoys from wrecks such as the Star of Greece, Norma and Zanoni. They were hoping to persuade DEH to replace any missing buoys. Amer agreed to try to re-establish the mooring buoy program which would see the missing buoys replaced. Photos taken during the meeting, including some of buoys, have been posted at http://picasaweb.google.com.au/stevereynolds600/SDFNewSheetJuly2010.

Star of Greece wreck location at Port Willunga
I understand that the mooring buoys missing from both the Norma and the Star of Greece wrecks have still not been replaced yet. It is hoped that the DEH will soon do the right thing.
