THREE DROWNED WHEN FISHING VESSEL STRUCK REEF AT NIGHT - Raymond Etchell (34), his son John (6) and Wilfred Marcus Alan Cowell (44), all of Stanley, lost their lives when Etchell's fishing launch 'Telopea' struck a reef off Guyton Point, on the north-eastern corner of Robin's Island, early on Saturday morning. Residents of the island who saw the Telopea ashore on the beach about 9.30 a.m. discovered tho bodies of the two men. With the pedal radio service at the island temporarily out of order, first news of the tragedy was taken to Smithton by Mr William Holyman, who arrived there by launch at 4.30 p.m. on Saturday.
The Telopea left Stanley I at 10 o'clock on Friday night for the crayfishing grounds of Hunter's Island and should have been off Robins Island about midnight. The reef, which runs out from the bluff at Guyton Point for about 200 yards contains three pinnacles at spaced intervals. They are nearly awash at high tide. In the darkness they are almost invisible and sailors give the point a wide berth. Etchell had a good knowledge of the island, and would have been aware of the dangers of the reef.
Local fishermen state that Friday night was fairly calm and clear, and find it difficult to know why the boat should have been close enough inshore to strike the reef.
As both bodies were without coats or boots it is thought the men made an effort to swim ashore. The presence of the child, John Etchell, on the wrecked vessel was not suspected until contact was made with Stanley. His body was found yesterday morning about 100 yards from the wreck. Plans to take Dr. D. G. Packham and the police to thc Island yesterday by air were upset by rough weather, which grounded planes in the area.
Sen. Constable R. Lockett and Trooper S. Crocket, of Stanley, were taken to the Island by Etehel's brother, Mr Oscar Etchell, in his fishing boat, the Cutty Sark, yesterday morning.
In the course of an extremely rough passage, with gales estimated at about 50 miles per hour, both police officers sustained cuts and bruises. After another hazardous voyage the three victims were taken to Smithton late yesterday afternoon.
An inquiry will be opened in Smithton to-day when evidence of identification will be taken by the Coroner (Mr R. H. Atkinson). Etchell is survived by his widow and a three-year-old daughter and Cowell by his widow and a small son and daughter
