Not a good look ...

An unhappy end to Easter for this crew. The power cruiser ran aground on the rock wall between the Breakwater marina entry and the mouth of the Ross Creek on Sunday night around 7pm. The four on board were rescued by the Coastguard but the badly holed boat was left to drift and ended up sinking just off one of the stinger-net bathing areas along the Strand. Yesterday we watched a retrieval crew prepare it for re-floating and expect they may try and re-float it for towing to the slipway at high tide this morning. Watch this space - although we are off to the slipway ourselves to help bring Gemini back to the marina. She looks beautiful with her new blue bottom and sparkly props and anodes.
