Fishing boat mods should have been checked

25 February 2013

“Amateurish” modifications to a fishing boat should have been checked by the Transport Department before the vessel sank and caused the deaths of two young crew members, the Coroner’s Court has heard, according to an adelaidenow.com.au report.

The two were fishing off the coast of Stansbury in September 2008 when they were hit by a squall and the boat sank.

Read the adelaidenow.com.au article for the details.
