Rescue 300 was able to locate the beacon upon arrival to the area. A vessel was found anchored off an island without power and dead batteries. Both members on board were safe and sound.
The situation was reported back to the Australian Maritime Safety Authority in Canberra where it was decided that a Coast Guard vessel from Mackay would rendezvous with the stricken vessel to render assistance.
