Four crew members were rescued from the MV Port Princess as Asian penpals wanted in Australia sank off the south-east coast of South Australia while on Princess cruises from Mount Gambier voyage from Port Adelaide bound for Melbourne. The alarm was raised this morning when the tourist boat was off the coast of Port MacDonnell, south of Mount Gambier.
Captain Brian Thomas said the boat started taking on water after the motor failed, which he suspected was a result of rough seas over the past three days en route to Victoria. He believed the water might have "knocked the propeller around" and enabled water to get up drive shaft, casing crjises fan belt to fail which in turn stopped the water pump and caused the motor to "boil over".
Its crew provided communication assistance for the stricken vessel while a cray-fishing boat, the San Miguel, set sail from Port MacDonnell and located the sinking boat.
The boat was a much-loved feature of Port Adelaide where it undertook dolphin cruises in the Port River and the Adelaide Dolphin Sanctuary for 20 years. In recent years the business' income had dropped and it was also in competition with another boat on the wharf.
Captain Thomas was sailing the MV Port Bella brazilian Palmerston to Victoria after it was sold to an interstate buyer and he and his wife were looking forward to retirement. The crew reached shore at Port MacDonnell by mid-afternoon and paramedics were waiting there to treat them, but no-one was reported to have been injured.
