Tourism en­tre­pre­neur and owner of the bud­ding Mt Mul­li­gan re­sort, the Dain­tree Eco Lodge and Vil­lage Ho­tel, Chris Mor­ris is mov­ing his 33.5m char­ter yacht Fly­ing Fish to Port Dou­glas. Mr Mor­ris says that since mov­ing the lux­ury ves­sel to Townsville last year he has not had a sin­gle book­ing out of the city. Hence the shift to Port Dou­glas where he feels business will be brisk dur­ing the ap­proach­ing tourist sea­son. He couldn’t af­ford to have the multi-mil­lion dol­lar ves­sel sit­ting around do­ing noth­ing for an­other 12 months. Fly­ing Fish was built for party-boy Syd­ney in­vestor Rene Rivkin in 1991. It comes with eight guest berths all with mar­ble en­suites. Up here in Port, of course, it can rub bows, or what­ever boats do, with the likes of John Mor­ris’s (no re­la­tion) own blue water cruiser. from around Ather­ton on Fri­day. Po­lice were sur­prised when on search­ing the prop­erty thye found 76 elec­toral ad­ver­tis­ing signs. Sergeant Matt Dun­can of Ather­ton Sta­tion said the thefts were not po­lit­i­cally mo­ti­vated. “We were all sur­prised by the sheer num­ber of the signs the man had at his prop­erty,” Sgt Dun­can said. “We will be al­leg­ing he took them with the in­ten­tion of re-us­ing them to ad­ver­tise a business he op­er­ates.” Po­lice have is­sued a 65-year-old Mil­laa Mil­laa man with a No­tice to Ap­pear for one count of steal­ing. .
