Due date
Thursday, 8th Aug 2013
For the next 3 months I am looking for people to accompany me on a small research boat on Sydney Harbour and carry out counts of fishermen, boats, anchors etc. This is part of a very large research survey examining how the Sydney Harbour's natural resources are used. I am particularly interested in looking for people between 10th August and 1st Septmember.

It is a full day starting at 7:30 from either Mosman (North) or Rose Bay (for those who live in the south). Days will generally end around 4pm, and will not go past 5pm. We'll pay for lunch, morning tea and afternoon tea ($35). Plus you get a free day out on the Harbour! I need two people per survey day, and days will be scheduled based on availability of helpers.

For safety reasons, you should be able to swim, be comfortable on small boats, be comfortable in adverse weather (surveys will need to be done rain, hail or shine!). You will be inducted as a volunteer at the Sydney Institute of Marine Science for this task.

Hey Luke, I am interested in doing this task with you. I have a friend who is also interested. We can spare a couple of days sometime next week. We a reliable friendly people who both enjoy the outdoors and would love the opportunity to spend a day out on the unting of course! Let me know what days are available and we can go from there. Cheers Luke
Hiya Luke, my partner gets back next week so 12th onwards, we could prolly spare a day each fortnight. It might be a good idea to duplicate this task so you can organise your schedule, and work out your volunteer teams, until you have enough numbers to cover your research runs.
Yes, great how about Friday? I am in Balmain, Thames street ferry is 2 minutes away. Not sure how it all works?

Hi Grant and Pamela! Thanks for the replies,
It would be good to make a start this week, perhaps Thursday or Friday, would that suit? Otherwise Mon-Fri all next week I'll be going out as well. Still keen?
I would love to do this task, am free on many of the days and am an excellent swimmer, love the harbour, happy to be on a boat but not a sailor. Have conducted footfall counts when I was a site manager for a farmers market. Have excellent long sight vision. This sounds a fascinating task.
