Disaster in Hout Bay Harbour

Yet another fishing boat sinks in the fishing harbour, the reasons are many, one reason it seems is the lack of a fishing quota to go out and catch fish?

Click on the image to enlarge it.

The boat is the Barbra, its been tied along side for some years and has not fished as long as I can remember, the part owner has been trying to raise the boat but is way underfunded.


Yesterday and they were still trying to get the boat upright.

They have a small air pump and have managed to get the front of the boat floating.

The block and tackle gear is a good idea but without floats and more power they have made little progress.
