Weather delays salvage
MOTHER nature has intervened yet again in the midst of the operation aimed at recovering the trawler Dianne from the depths of Bustard Bay.
Last week the effort to rig and lift the sunken vessel from about 30m of water was hampered by 37km/h winds and rough conditions at sea.
Salvage crew divers managed to roll the Dianne on Monday, December 4, after she had been lying on her roof since October 16, 2017, the day she sunk about five nautical miles off Round Hill Headland.
Now, almost three months later, a barge and tug boat remain on stand-by at Bundaberg for the all-clear from weather experts.
