Account by survivors
MV COMFORTER 2 was fishing South of Saltpond.
The fishing vessel had caught a lot of fish in its net and was having challenges hauling the net.
The weight of the fishes in the net had caused the vessel to list.
Some sailors tried to prompt the Captain of the situation but he insisted the hauling should continue.
The HNK’s continued hauling caused the vessel to list further and it eventually capsized.
