Digger stuck in the mud up to near the top of its cab, apparently hired by the Little Shoal Bay Boat Owners Association. Hired from Porter Hire to retrieve a 4WD.

 

I'm hoping someone has appropriate insurance in place...

It obviously got caught by rising sea levels caused by climate change.

They should have seen this coming Little Shoal bay is absolutely riven by sea level rises and climate change.

The science is settled !!

This would of been so easy to resolve had the Ports of AK still had in operation the floating crane "Hikinui" float in high tide and lift out at low tide job done !

 

Back in the TV1 news tonight.

The headline to this follow up story says a lot I think...

Little Shoal Bay digger stuck in mud can't be moved because permits needed
