Reckless’ Boat Shed, 1930s

Boats were available for hire to take a trip up the river for picnics and pleasure, to fish for flathead or to visit one of the many oyster leases. Boat hire was advertised as available at any time of the day with daily, hourly and weekly hire rates. Fishing tackle and bait could be purchased from several local stores. Provided visitors were not too venturesome and stayed clear of the bar, boating was in safe waters.
