Boat removed after running aground on Christchurch beach

A 13-metre long fishing boat that ran aground on a Christchurch beach to protect an “inexperienced crew’s safety” has been removed. Contractors had been working intermittently during low tide since Sunday morning to deconstruct and remove the boat, deemed “unsalvageable” after grinding to a halt on Waimairi Beach. The vessel, Debbie Jane, was on its way from Banks Peninsula to Motueka, near Nelson, when it ran aground well off course on Saturday night. >click to read< 14:05
