A cargo boat travelling from Phuket suffered engine failure, was hit by waves and ended up stuck on rocks off Koh Phi Phi in Krabi this morning (August 23).

 

Officials from the Hat Nopparat Thara National Park were called at 10.30am to inform them that a cargo boat name ‘Salinee’ had engine failure and was found drifting near Laem Tong on Koh Phi Phi.

 

A tour boat from the Andaman Wave Company was used to tow the cargo boat off the rocks. It took about one hour to get the boat to a safe area away from the rocks. The boat wasn’t badly damaged and all boat crews were safely taken off Salinee to awaiting boats during the rescue.

Same here 

Not sure how much cargo would fit on it, but I reckon it might of been the monthly of plastic food containers
