What is the legal minimum water line length of a boat permitted to take an ocean voyage from the Western Australian mainland to Rottnest island?

Ben there is no 'legal' limit to as what boat you take over to rottnest. A rough rule of thumb would be 1 person per meter on a boat if you are going out in the ocean. But also work to the conditions given, if the doctor is in and the seas are up you just wouldnt take out a small boat. Always think safety when working around boatsd and always let somebody else know where you are going and your intended location and stay time.

Thanx Tickford,
I've bought a small high performance yacht (4.20m) and look forward to sailing with EPIRB, vhf radio, flares, signal mirror, etc, from Hillarys to Rottnest.

Hi Ben, Vessels under 3.75 metres in length (including personal water craft) may not go further to sea than five nautical miles from the mainland. Thats the Dept of Transport rules, from the Skippers Ticket study book.

I know its a late post, however I thought it may be useful in case anyone else was wondering.
