THREE Yarrabah men have been found safe and well af­ter spend­ing a night out to sea when their boat broke down. The trio were fish­ing on Tues­day when one of them called his girl­friend about 7pm to say their ves­sel had bro­ken down be­tween Batt Reef and Dou­ble Is­land. Fam­ily called po­lice sev­eral hours later and a search was started. They were lo­cated by Res­cue 510 heli­copter about 3.30am this morn­ing an­chored near Wangetti and were even­tu­ally towed to Port Dou­glas by the Coast Guard.
