Two Australian Fisherman Lost At Sea

The Tasman Sea may have taken two more victims June 5th, 2013.  Richard Choi and Damion Diamond went missing after the skiff they were riding in was forced to weather a tough winter storm.

Australian National Wildlife officers found two life jackets, a fuel tank and other personal items belonging to the men at the north end of Stockton Beach in Port Stephens, New South Wales. The two had taken off in their 15 foot runabout to go fishing.

Shore Search

Volunteers took to ATV's to search the coast for items that may have belonged to the missing fishermen. Officials say the two men ignored warnings about rough conditions.


The two men sent frantic text messages asking for help after they ran out of fuel.  The items found washed up on a beach 40 miles North of their last known position.  Prior to leaving, the men are believed to have knocked on the door of the local marine patrol asking if they could borrow a fishing rod.  They were warned not go out into the sea.  

Items Washed Up On Beach

On June 4th, 2013, Evi Nemeth, on the schooner, Nina, gave the last known report for that craft.  Unlike the case reported on this page, nothing has been found of the Nina or her seven sailors.  Many of the family members believe the Nina is still afloat and the crew waiting for rescue.

Local Fisherman Missing

Rescue authorities state the search for the missing sailors is a recovery mission.  They state the boat turned over because life jackets and a fuel tank were found floating.  The time for a person who is swimming to survive in the cold Tasman Sea has passed.  We believe all people have a basic right to be presumed living until it is proven otherwise.  We think the worst thing you can rob from someone is their hope.  We ask all sailors who are in the Tasman Sea to keep an eye out for this boat as well as the Nina, which disappeared at about the same time.
