    Yup. Too soon. Usually takes a while at least before the fish take up residence

    It had fires in both engine rooms and it couldn't be put out.
    By the time we got out there it was a mess.
    Thanks to some local Spanner crab boats and a VMR boat from Gladstone we were able to get everyone back safely. It was a long night.

    It has gone down to the best of our knowledge. There is an effort now to locate it before the 1000lts of fuel still on board doesn't case a spill on the reef.
