Cooee Bay Trading Company (CBTC) alias "SkippersMate.com.au" is an Australian business owned and managed by Peter J Hackett to supply marine and land based outdoor adventure 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 online selling in 2009 and have since expanded the range based on personal use experience and customer demand. We don't hide behind a username or eCommerce store. 

Owning our stock and having it warehoused in Brisbane and or Melbourne means we can ship many orders out for next day delivery.

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 us 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.
