In Queensland,Victoria, South Australia , compare to other capital cities of Australia , except for Western Australia ,they have training licensing courses in place, to obtain an automatic scooter license RE- A up to 250cc or R-A open class license above 250cc . Western australia is only capital city ,that have no training licensing courses , to obtain automatic scooter licenses ,like the other capital cities of australia . Western Australia is the only capital city in Australia , that is not keeping with the trend of automatic scooter licenses ,compare to the other capital cities . Western Australia , is so far behind the times of updating their automatic scooter licensing laws , compared to the other capital cities , who already have in place, training licensing courses to obtain RE-A or R- A 250cc licenses.
So many thanks. So, Term dock is used only when it's related to repair of vessel. Like entering a cube of water and then water drained away to access areas below sea level. Once ready, its filled again and vessel floats again n then gates open to enter main water body. So it's from their that dry dock and wet dock came by .
When a vessel is locked to a pier or quay,its called berthing of vessel. Not docking. am I right?
So most lakes with private or public extensions into lake for accessing small vessels is called a pier.
Interesting that this search n landing at this place happened as I M standing at a place with both pier and quay.
Is it necesaary, pier has to be absolutely of wood. The ones we have are concrete n or steel but wooden logs are tied on sides, like cushion.
Then but whats a Marina?
A harbour lets ships dock in deep water but artificially or natural features making the water body calm and safe.
So a port is basically an infrastructure to berth ships within calm waters n undertake exchange of goods.
When the depth is less, then instead of Port, it could be a quay or jetties of fishing vessels.
So in any case a geographic feature or man made break water is what keeps the water body inside cut off from what's happening outside. 'Safe harbor' must hv orgins there.
A port or quay without some sort of breakwater will be open to storms n other elements of sea. Else it should be way inland like a river or lake connected to sea n deep enough to take ships to an infrastructure made aside an inland waterbody.
Please correct my understanding n also what is a Marina. I hv been associated with ports breakwaters lagoons n everything since childhood but still can't really explain the difference with confidence
