Murray Princess takes a break

21 Oct 2010

A broken paddle wheel on the graceful Murray Princess recently caused quite a stir at Swan Reach Wharf Reserve.

sunkenWhile arriving to dock at Swan Reach the renowned river vessel’s paddle wheel broke off. The Princess was able to dock and no one was injured, but the 99 passengers on board had their River Murray paddle boat adventures disrupted.

The incident was witnessed by ever-alert department staff and marine officers were quick to respond and inspect the vessel, assess damage and set repair requirements. After carrying out temporary repairs under supervision from department staff, the passengers were able to carry on with their cruise.
