Ferry vandalism put down to closure of marina
Central Coast Ferries has put vandalism on its historic ferry Codock II down to the closure of the Empire Bay Marina.
The business has reported three or four students damaging the vessel during the school holidays.
"Our treasured Codock II was built in about 1943.
"She worked as a defence force work boat at the end of World War II."
The vandals reportedly stole both fire extinguishers from the boat, discharging one all over the aft cockpit.
"They also boarded the Saratoga and ripped off a headlight."
The business said that vandalism was much less likely if they had a "safe secure mooring" as they had at Empire Bay Marina before it was closed.
"We are installing more security on all vessels."
