Mana Coastguard would like to personally thank the local boaties for their support during the search for the missing diver in the weekend (8 December). Special thanks go to Steve Voullaire of Mark Time and the boys from Florin who dropped what they were doing and provided their vessels to ferry out the Police Dive Squad and a relief Mana Coastguard crew to the search area. This support was invaluable as the Lady Elizabeth 3 was unable to get across the bar due to a low tide and it meant that the Coastguard rescue vessel CRV Pelorus could remain tasked to searching for the diver rather than ferrying personnel and equipment.

Other vessels that spent considerable time assisting with the search included Sea Patrol (Cable Patrol), Melicent, Endeavour, Intimidator and numerous others. Again, a big thanks for working under the co-ordination of Trust Porirua Rescue in completing the tasked search patterns.
