A ski boat sank on the Murray River near Cadell on the Murray on Tuesday night after it sustained damage attempting to tow another boat to a nearby ramp.
No-one was injured in the incident, which occurred about 6.30pm.
A NSW Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said the ski boat’s transom fractured due to the strain from the tow rope.
‘‘The towing vessel then began taking on water,’’ the spokesperson said.
‘‘The skipper of the ski boat attempted to take the boat to the nearby boat ramp, but the vessel took on more water and sank near the shore about 50m from the ramp.’’
A district barge operator salvaged the vessel yesterday with the help of RMS, which created a no wash zone in the area.
