John Crawford Marine has been advised today that Ally Craft Boats has been acquired by Telwater. Telwater manufacture three iconic aluminium brands - Quintrex, Stacer and Savage boats and now they can add Ally Craft to their string of quality brands. JCM has been advised that in the current market conditions, Telwater has no plans to produce Ally Craft boats in the immediate future. Telwater has commended Murray and Iris Cox (the previous owners) on their long standing contribution to the boat manufacturing industry and the team at JCM also pass on their best wishes.

Towing Oversize Boats in Queensland comes with a revised permit and rule book.

John Crawford Marine advises fellow trailer boat owners of over width boats that the rules were changed in July 2012. The legal width limit for any vehicle using Queensland roads is 2.50 metres. In Queensland, the Department of Transport and Main Roads provides limited access for vehicles that exceed regulation dimensions when carrying indivisible items. An indivisible item is one that cannot be divided without extreme effort, expense or risk of damage to it.
