There is a sunken vessel in Flatts and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources “has directed that action be taken to ensure that there is no further fuel loss until such time as the private vessel can be safely refloated.”

A Government spokesperson said, “The Ministry of Home Affairs has been advised of a sunken vessel in Flatts.

“The Department of Environment and Natural Resources has been in contact with the owner of the boat. Attempts have been made by a private contractor to refloat the vessel but unfortunately, due to an equipment malfunction, the attempts were not successful.

“New flotations are in transit for deployment. In the meantime, the Department has directed that action be taken to ensure that there is no further fuel loss until such time as the private vessel can be safely refloated.”

    Great! Now, how about the wrecks scattered across Ely’s Harbour and Mangrove Bay for the last 18-24 months? With no cruise ships for the foreseeable future you would think Marine and Ports would have time to contact the owners and tell them they can move the wrecks or M and P will arrange for removal at the owners’ expense. Repairing all the broken marine signage that has been ignored for years would make for a safer 2021 boating season also.
