Kathryn-L resurfaces after sinking in harbour
THE Kathryn-L has been hauled from the Yamba Boatharbour, two weeks after it sunk with around 200 litres of diesel fuel onboard.
A specialised heavy-lifting crane was used to re-float the vessel on Tuesday afternoon, which was then transferred to a secure dry dock area to contain any fuel spills.
The former trawler was deemed beyond repair and was broken up on site and successfully removed on Tuesday afternoon.
A Roads and Maritime Services spokesman said RMS had started an investigation to determine what caused the boat to sink to the bottom of the harbour earlier this month.
