This 60 year old fishing boat ran out of power on its way back to the Kewalo Basin port and drifted into shallow waters before it hit the wall and got stuck here in front of the Kakaako Waterfront shoreline. The incident happened early Sunday morning and the boat as at the mercy of the waves before the owner gave permission to have a salavage firm dismantle it.

The stricken vessel attracted a gaggle of onlookers and media folk late yesterday afternoon as salvage operations were well under way. It was noted that the captain of the vessel, was rehired by another fishing boat firm from the Big Island a few days after this incident. This wreck was the 2nd to occur under his watch according to news reports.
