Deniliquin Police and Murray Shire Council set up road blocks after a yacht came off the back of a trailer near Mathoura.ZOE MCMAUGH January 15, 2013 5:17pm
A 63 year-old Victorian man was reportedly on his way to Queensland to send his yacht on its maiden voyage when the vessel fell from its trailer while driving through Mathoura on Thursday.
The vessel had been towed from Narrawong, near Portland, in Victoria.
The driver told police he heard a ‘‘thud’’ when he was about 6km south of Mathoura, about 8pm on Thursday.
He then looked in his rear view mirror to see the vessel in the middle of the Cobb Hwy.
Police were unable to detail the damage to the boat, but said it would be safe to say it did not make its maiden voyage as planned.
Murray Shire Council provided traffic control as the vessel was placed back on the trailer, which police say was done fairly swiftly using a winch.
