Accidental death verdict on crew of fishing boat
Sunday 09 November 2008
The reasons for the sinking of the fishing boat 'Solway Harvester', with the loss of seven lives, will never be known, an Isle of Man coroner said yesterday.
Recording verdicts of accidental death, coroner Michael Moyle highlighted more than 20 separate safety issues on the scallop dredger, which sank off the Isle of Man in 2000, but concluded that "some matters will remain unanswered".
However, he condemned the boat's owner, Richard Gidney, saying some of his evidence was "unsatisfactory or inadequate". Mr Moyle added: "Mr Gidney had concluded his evidence by endeavouring to dispel any suggestion that the 'Solway Harvester' was not properly maintained. Many others, myself included, might not necessarily share such a view."
