Cooee Bay Trading Company (CBTC) alias "SkippersMate.com.au" is a business managed by Peter J Hackett to supply marine and now land based safety equipment designed to protect and identify where you are when you are either boating, sailing, conducting outdoor activities like bushwalking or outback 4x4 travelling.

We started selling the VHF Marine Radio Operators Handbook & 150 Examination questions and answers product, and have since expanded the range based on personal experience and customer demand.

Having a marine rescue background, many of the products have been chosen because of their design & purpose to Save Life, be it on water or land.

With over 30 years of customer sales contact, the one thing that makes CBTC different from many other sellers is that we are “Easy To Deal With”. That’s why we value your  Feedback and Product Reviews – We only wish more buyers would provide comments.

Our Returns Policy is simple too as it stems from the “good old days” of customer service.

What is it?


If there is a problem either phone us and ask for Peter on 0418 776 862 or email message us – it really is that simple!

Any time you have a question about a product's feature or fit for purpose, phone or email sales@skippersmate.com.au

We carry stock and despatching orders promptly with a reliable and trusted transport company. We use Australia Post and have had a great delivery service using their Track & Signature service.

CBTC also supports a number of Public Education marine safety web sites and therefore some of the proceeds from your purchase go to maintaining and marketing those sites;
