The fleet of boats called ‘The Popeye’ are our own State Heritage icons. Since the first boat was launched on the River Torrens in 1935, the trip on The Popeye from Elder Park to the Adelaide Zoo has historically been a treasured family outing and the boats have also hosted weddings and other events.
Today the tradition continues and you can still find The Popeye at the motor launch in Elder Park in front of the Adelaide Festival Centre.
When it came time to upgrade the decking at the motor launch the Adelaide City Council came to Cosset and used our the recycled wood plastic composite DuraComp™ solid decking in the outstanding red earth colour.
