    The road will prob still get washed out at times !

    They have made a good job of the back wall.

    I am NOT impressed with the end though !

    Looking back along the jetty, Plenty of room.

    If the road to the jetty stays ok I'm sure some will drive their cars onto the jetty.

    So guys that's it no more photos to update you all, hope to see some of you on there one day, Enjoy it.
    btw right near the pump house door on the left hand side there is a hole with wires, I think it's going to be for lighting but dont hold your breath cos I have also been told....the money has run out !.

    Nice pics. I can see a barrier going up sometime to stop the cars going on. Good place to fish from your car if the sea doesn't crash over.

    I think it will happen sometime.... 1 or 2 cars will be driven on & the sea will wash the road out then they will be stuck on the jetty !

    How long will the "Plastic" railings last

    easier to replace after storm damage etc ?

    when we used to refurbish during 70,s end with kennedy grating (better than boards-weight of breakers straight

    through-boards used to wash off.) & weld chains on to railings after rails stolen for scrap but

    they didn't last long as chains took for bottom ropes etc.

    thanks for pics mick, hope you get some pleasure on the old jetty shes scrubbed up

    quite nice, just wants some looking after. would Bimbo/ fred bostock approved?

    probably have a go later on in early morn tides when a good sea developes.

    I'm just glad to help you guys out, Although I have now packed in fishing & gone back to photography.
    If I hear any news about the jetty I'll let you all know.

    Another update guys, you cant get your cars on the jetty cos there is 2 large stones blocking the road near th car park ( did not get a pic sorry I'll get one later today )
    here is the pipe where the wires will come through for the lighting "If they install any"
