Jumping for joy after claiming boat package prize

MARYBOROUGH'S Peter Oliphant was left jumping for joy after claiming a coveted prize at the Wide Bay and Fraser Coast Home Show.

Peter entered the draw for a top quality boat from Bay City Marine and he was thrilled to be told that he was the lucky winner from those who entered the draw at the event.

He'll be looking forward to taking his new 370 Quintrex Explorer out on the water, complete with its 8 horsepower Mercury two- stroke outboard.

The boating package prize is valued at $7000 and includes safety gear and a trailer for the boat, along with 12 months registration for both the boat and the trailer.
