Work Continues on Raising Trawler near 1770

The Fishing Vessel Dianne is now sitting in more shallow waters near 1770 after being partially re-floated. Salvage crews are expected to spend the rest of the week preparing to completely re-float the sea cucumber trawler before it's towed back to Bundaberg. The RACQ Capricorn Rescue Helicopter was tasked out to 1770 to help police in finding excess debris following the partial raising of the boat but failed to locate anything yesterday. The Dianne went down off Middle Island in October last year, taking the lives of six men.
