Marine Rescue NSW Illawarra Inspector Stuart Massey, said the location of the boat made things a bit tricky, with the vessel initially located close to rocks in the Harbour.

A Kiama Surf Life Saving crew managed to secure a line onto the partially submerged boast and it was then towed back to the Kiama Harbour boat ramp.
