Fishing trawler stuck on Big Bay beach near Milford Sound

Attempts to refloat a trawler grounded at a remote beach near Milford Sound with four people onboard have been unsuccessful. Southland harbourmaster Lyndon Cleaver said the boat, named Remus, suffered a mechanical problem before grounding at Big Bay, north of Milford Sound on Thursday. A salvage team from Wanaka flew to the area at 7am this morning on behalf of the boat’s insurers, Cleaver said. They were able to start the vessel at high tide and tried moving it off the beach. photos>click to read< and >here<08:17
