    Default Sunk motorboat at Southwold entrance?

    Heard on the vhf this afternoon that there is a sunk motorboat at the entrance to Southwold entrance and boaters are warned to be vigilant when entering. Does anyone know anything more about this sunk motorboat?

    It's a fishing boat that had engine failure and hit the harbour wall, close to the harbour entrance, close to the entrance, according to the news. The two man crew managed to jump off onto the harbour wall.

    Looking at the piccie is it on the south side of the breakwater rather than actually in the entrance?

    Yes that looks right. The 'wall' there is not solid, I guess the warning relates to possible boat fragments washing through into the entrance channel.
