• Disabled access with a difference Monday, July 21, 2014

    We recently received a call from Lee, a local resident here on the coast who's husband has a passion for the water but yet could not easily gain access to their family pool. Lee and Franchot of Robina tried many different companies on the Coast to build them a disabled access gangway into the family pool, yet found it very difficult to find a company willing to help. Simon Dyer of Aqua Construction took on the job and put his 20 years of marine construction experience into designing this gangway from scratch, complete with non-slip tread, dual hand rails for support, powder coated finish, anodes to stop corrosion and adjustable feet to raise and lower the entry height into the pool. Franchot had not been in the pool for quiet sometime and on the first day his words were "I feel re-born" after what was an amazing swim. Simon is one very clever man and we thank the whole team at Aqua Construction are AMAZING   ...

    Are you planning to have a jetty constructed? That's a good thing but before you start buying any material, make sure to know what are the licensing requirements for it. In the Gold Coast area and in the entire Australia, all jetties require a license.

  • Jetty and Boardwalk Construction Monday, June 23, 2014

    When deciding on a jetty and boardwalk construction, you have to consider your budget, the location and the kind of materials to use. On top of that, you also need a team of qualified carpenters who will do the job well because mediocre work is only a waste of time and money. Although most construction companies have insurance coverages, you need to get the job right the first time because its not really about getting insurance but enjoying a well done jetty. Regarding the materials and your budget, you have the choice of timber, polymer and aluminium. Tell your contractor about your budget so they can give you a quote that would fit it. Don't worry, nothing is final until you sign a contract for work. You also need to show them your location so they can make plans that would fit it and you can decide which one really suits you. You can at least ask for three possible plans and a respectable contractor will definitely oblige because it understands that as a customer, you want thing...
  • Some Newbie Jet Ski Buying Tips Monday, June 16, 2014

    Here are some tips before you buy your first jet ski and avoid buyer's remorse. A jet ski is a costly investment and if you make buying mistakes, its an awful waste of money. To avoid this money pit, read some of our tips: 1. If you are a complete newbie, you should avoid buying a brand new jet ski. There is a learning curve in handling this watercraft and its not a good idea to make mistakes with a brand new—and an expensive one at that—machine that just came out of the lot. 2. Don't forget to consider the number of person that's going to ride the vessel. If you intend to ride with the rest of the family, you better opt for the three-person model or if its just you, there is the single-person model. 3. Don't underestimate the weight of this machine. A single person jet ski can easily weigh up to 400 pounds. That is not exactly light but a couple of strong grown ups can lift that. A three person model on the other hand can easily weight up to 1,000 pounds. With that kind o...
