The day before the capsize.
Several boats came to help and they tied a heavy rope to try and pull the boat upright.....with no success. They also tied barrels to the sides, also with no luck. There was a lot of pointing and yelling and looks of helplessness.
They tried pumping the water out.
Some of the barrels broke free and these men were helping bring them to shore.
The crew of a different fishing boat that tried to help earlier,
Onlookers from the village.
They tried using a pulley, winch and brute force to right the boat with a rope tied to a large boulder on the bank of the hill. It didn't last long and we watched the boat tip over again as we walked home. This is heartbreaking.
This is the non-result of their back breaking work.
The anchor rope broke and the boat turned during the night. There was no sign of anyone on the boat throughout the day and early evening. It appears that they have stripped the rigging.
Still no sign of anyone working to save the boat.
Day 5 and 6
No work on the ghost ship
The super structure at the back of the boat broke off during the night of rough waves.
Watching as they remove what little fuel and items are left.
We see daylight
Parts stuck in the sea floor and the remaining salvage.
It was rough again overnight. Probably because it was gutted and broken it managed to wash up next to the seawall.
We wanted to see this through to the end, but we were hoping for a different outcome. There is construction going on at the breakwater that we are documenting. I guess they asked the track-hoe operator to help.
