- Marine Rescue volunteers rescue seven from grounded vessel
- August 27, 2012
Seven people were rescued after a converted fishing trawler ran aground opposite Lobster Beach late on Sunday, August 26.
The crew of another vessel noticed the 45 foot timber boat in difficulties about 5pm and notified Marine Rescue Central Coast.
Two rescue vessels were dispatched from the unit’s Point Clare base, one of which secured a line to the boat in trouble.
Several attempts were made to refloat the boat, without success.
Two adults and four children from North Narrabeen were transferred to the second Marine Rescue craft and returned to Careel Bay, while a fifth child was reunited with her father at Ettalong Wharf.
The skipper of the grounded boat decided to remain on board overnight and attempt to float the craft at the next high tide (4.28am Monday) but unfortunately this was not successful.
NSW Police Force Marine Area Command and a Marine Rescue crew aboard Central Coast 20 will attempt to refloat the vessel on this afternoon’s tide.
