Reported to the MAAV as a snag by a local net fisherman, Phillip McCubbin, this 'shipwreck' turned out to be a Haines Hunter equipped with a 150 hp Black Max. Lost by a boat dealer while out on a demo with a potential client off Wiliamstown. With some quick rope work by MAAV member Peter Taylor and the assistance of a large net boat the Haines was literally pulled to the surface. Incredibly after 12 months on the sea floor mechanics had the motor kicking over a week later.
