No Help After Storm For Boatie
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
2 Weeks after a strong storm hit Rockingham in Western Australia, a local boat owner has been left to attempt to recover his Catamaran from Port Kennedy beach.
The uninsured owner says he has had no help from the local Sea Rescue group or council since the stranding a couple of weeks ago.
The boat broke its mooring in Port Kennedy during winds of over 100km/hr.
The owner is devestated and is seeking help, he is requesting help in the way of an excavator and heavy lifting equipment to remove the boat from the beach.
He intends to fix the boat himself.
