The cause of the problem was a faulty fuel pump that would not deliver fuel to the engine. Volunteers from Marine Rescue Bermagui reached the disabled vessel in approx 1 hour 15 mins and took it in tow. The return journey was uneventful and completed in three and a half hours.
The run of Bluefin tuna attracted large numbers of boats to the region and Marine Rescue NSW urges all boaters to log on with their local Marine Rescue radio base to ensure someone responsible knows they are out there and can take action if an emergency occurs.
