via VMR Whitsunday:
Due to a serious mechanical problem, VMR Whitsunday's Rescue Vessel VMR1 is out of action.
Even with our meticulous maintenance schedule, unfortunately these things happen.
And it couldn't have happened at a worse time of year, with mechanics away on leave and pats suppliers closed down for the Christmas/New Year break.
We cannot expect any repairs to be completed until at least January 3, so in the meantime, we are unable to go out on any rescues.
So PLEASE take extra care that you will not require our services.
