Roeland Janson and his marine business Sea Horizons can help fix all fibreglass problems with boats big or small. Originally from Darwin, he gained his experience working on marine craft over in Brisbane, helping build $8 million superyachts. When he returned, he realised no one was fixing fibreglass boats, so got to work to help people getting their pride and joy back out in the water. Sea Horizons can help with all fibreglass problems, for fixing minor marks and leaks to major revamp work. They can also help in making your boat look its best, offering repainting and refurbishing services for all sized-boats, from replacing carpet in small dinghies to complete carpet and upholstery work on major sailing vessels. Sea Horizons can handle all jobs required to keep your boat afloat, with spray painters, welders and general tradespeople on call to make sure every job is done to the upmost satisfaction. And Roeland does not just handle the craft on the water, as he can work on all fibreglass moulds, including fixing of a number of speedway cars and bikes for the upcoming season. So, if you need some quick advice in how to get you boat looking its best again, drop into Sea Horizons at unit 2/23 Georgina Cresent, Yarrawonga, or call 0406 923 513.

Last Friday he was in Darwin in a new role that he hopes will lead to Top End builders having access to best-practice training following a new agreement struck by the NT and NSW associations of the Master Builders. Two years after he stood down from coaching the Canterbury Bulldogs after triple bypass surgery because of a heart attack, Mr Anderson has taken on a leadership role in the building industry. The former Kangaroos and New South Wales Blues representative winger, who later coached Australia to World Cup victory, has turned his talents to becoming part of the Master Builders NSW association. He is a Certificate III training coordinator who helps mentor young workers on how to get the right qualifications for a career in building. The man who coached both Canterbury Bulldogs and Melbourne Storm to premiership wins was last week joined by Master Builders NSW training manager Paul Lawrence and his Northern Territory counterpart Jane Carrigan in launching a new initiative for the southern training organisation to help provide Top End workers with the skills required to work in the building industry, especially for licensing purposes. He said the Territory/NSW alliance was in recognition of the current infrastructure works and the bright future of building and construction in the Territory. "Darwin has grown significantly during the past decade and we are committed to providing the training required to support future growth and prosperity in the region," Mr Anderson said. Ms Carrigan said the collaboration provided a "fantastic opportunity to bring depth to our training by using the expertise of the NSW Master Builders Association". It is planned for the NT Master Builders Association to become a one-stop shop for all building and construction certifications that will provide NT workers with national accreditation and enable them to work anywhere in the country. Mr Anderson said he was attracted to helping train construction industry workers "because they are knockabout people like in football". And what did he make of the wellpublicised knocks that happened in 2009 to the game he gave four decades of his life to. "With the year they had it proved you can't kill the game with a cannon," he said. Rugby league legend Chris Anderson joins NT Master Builders Association training manager Jane Carrigan and her NSW counterpart Paul Lawrence to launch a new building industry training initiative for the Territory 7Sun Newspapers WEDNESDAY October 14 2009NEWS 16dw06/09 16dw07/09 From the Desk of the Member for Goyder, Kezia Purick Urban areas have had their hard rubbish clean up in preparation for the cyclone season and it is timely that rural people get organised also to make sure their properties are safe and secure and don't forget to stack up on the three Bs - bake beans, batteries and beer. An item overlooked often is the foods for your pets so include dog, cat, chook and horse foods too. All of us have been watching the cost of buying houses go up and up and trying to rent places is almost impossible. In 2004, the average rent of a 3 bedroom house was $260 per week. It is now $520 per week and that's an average rent, some are much higher. Too many are being forced into shared homes, vans and even into tents. Many are leaving the Territory and that will hurt everyone. The rural area is no better - the only saving grace is the blocks are bigger and perhaps more sharing can be done. Pressure needs to be kept on Government to release more land and make land available for development and not tiny little dog box size land parcels.

Dont miss our special Cyclone Guide - only in next weeks edition of the Sun Top End women in the running EIGHT of the Top End's best business women have been recognised as finalists for the 2009 NT Telstra Business Women's Awards. A real estate agent, a hospital general manager, a market manager and a public relations consultant are just some of this year's finalists for the awards, announced on Thursday. Telstra Product Management Group managing director Holly Kramer said the finalists represent some "truly inspirational and talented NT business women". Finalists include Menzies School of Health and Research Laboratory manager Susan Hutton, NT Gas general manager Wendy Oldham, Mindil Beach Sunset Markets general manager Kylie Thatcher and Mitchell St Child Care Centre director Louise de Bomford. The Telstra Northern Territory Business Woman of the Year will be announced at a Darwin Convention Centre awards presentation luncheon on October 23. Now in its 15th year, the awards recognise the achievements of women in business of all types and sizes, from upand-coming young business women to corporate leaders and those working in the not-for-profit sector.
