Zhejiang 24 hours, Qianjiang Evening News reporter learned from Zhejiang Haitong Satellite Communications Company that Zhejiang Dai 03158 fishing vessel under the company found an unmanned yacht drifting without power in the East China Sea.
Subsequently, Qianjiang Evening News reporter contacted Wang Weiping, the captain of the yacht, through Haitong Company.
The other side told Qian Bao that at 4:00 a.m. yesterday morning, we fished at 127 degrees 29 east longitude and 30 degrees 40 North latitude, and found a yacht drifting without power. At that time, I honked my horn on the boat and then shouted loudly, but no one on the other side responded. I saw that the door of the yacht was open. I approached the boarding boat with a small boat and found that there was no one on the boat. Im towing the yacht by rope, and now Im on my way back to Shenjiamen Fishing Port.
The yacht is about 10 meters wide and 30-40 meters long. It has a three-storey structure with an engine room at the bottom. When we got on board, we went to the cab and saw that the equipment inside was very luxurious. There were four Mitsubishi units with 1300 horsepower. We did not find any people on board repeatedly. Boss told reporters that he found a business card on board. According to the business card information, the cruise ship was a Korean yacht, which was from Busan, South Korea to Fukuoka, Japan. Because the boat is a catamaran, it is difficult to tow on the sea. The fishing boat can only drive 3-4 nautical miles an hour after towing, and the fishing boat cant catch it. It takes about 4-5 days to drive to Shenjiamen Fishing Port. After arriving at the shore, the owner of the boat intends to call a police to protect the yacht first.
Zhedai 03158 fishing boat is a drift gill net fishing boat. It mainly catches Horsehead fish. It has been at sea for more than 10 days. It was originally planned to return to Hong Kong on December 15 before the Spring Festival. Now because of towing and rescuing the yacht, it could run 11 nautical miles per hour, but now the speed is only 3-4 nautical miles, and it can not fish, so it can only make a quick return to Shenjiamen fishing port day and night.
Wang Weiping, the ships boss, said that he had been fishing for more than 30 years, and this was the first time he had ever encountered such a situation. Walking into the cockpit of the yacht, I felt that the cockpit of the yacht was really luxurious. Unfortunately, I forgot to bring my mobile phone and didnt take pictures when I climbed over.
