How to Help Save the Cerberus.

URGENT as of 18 July 2018.
Heritage Victoria Approves the Filling of Cerberus with 4,000 tonnes of Concrete.

Did Heritage Victoria read our Submission?

They can't have, as their reasons for rejecting polyurethane are contradicted by the facts.

Heritage Victoria rejected polyurethane as "This option was not supported based on cost, environmental risk, and that polyurethane foam has not previously been tested on ship wrecks or similar contexts."

Our submission pointed out that:-

  1. Polyurethane is affordable and we included an indicative quote to support this.

  2. When injected into sea water, polyurethane cures within seconds. The Safety Data Sheet (included in our submission) for a two compound structural polyurethane foam states that "Cured material is environmentally safe."

  3. Our submission included a number of examples where polyurethane has been used in similar contexts such as in sea going barges, sea walls and under water pipes.


Clearly Heritage Victoria has not kept an open mind, or even read our submission,

What can Supporters Do?

At this stage we suggest that supporters might like to write polite letters to the editors of The Sun, The Age, The Australian and The Bayside Leader newspapers pointing out the stupidity of concrete fill as opposed to the use of polyurethane. We cannot emphasise enough, that until over 200 concrete trucks are driving towards Half Moon Bay, the battle is not lost.

We believe that for letters to be considered for publication, they must have a name, street address and phone number so their authenticity can be checked. An email address is not sufficient.

Write to your local Member of Parliament

Many of our members & supporters have written to the relevant ministers over the last few years. My suspicion is that politicians cannot receive too many letters urging them to act in order to Save the Cerberus.

We strongly encourage all of our members to do likewise.

To facilitate this we have included links to the addresses of

Victorian State Lower House (Assembly) Members of Parliament

Victorian State Upper House (Council) Members of Parliament

Australian House of Representatives Members of Parliament

Australian Senators

If you do nothing else to help save Cerberus please write to your State and Federal members.
They do take note of elector's concerns.

Our Home Page has a good summary of the significance of Cerberus.
