Weird coincidence? Second empty vessel found off Queensland coast:
Another unmanned vessel has been discovered floating off the coast of Queensland.
The six-metre barnacle-encrusted fibreglass boat, which was yesterday spotted in waters off the Sunshine Coast, is the second mystery vessel to be found in Queensland waters in less than a week.
Fisherman spotted the second boat about 30km off the coast of Caloundra.
The boat was found upturned and adrift, with the keys still in the ignition and a tank full of fuel.
Fishing gear and scuba diving equipment were retrieved from the vessel and both outboard motors were still intact.
