The owner of a Melbourne company that built a boat which capsized killing four crew members has been found guilty of manslaughter. The racing yacht Excalibur sank in rough seas after its keel snapped off the mid-north coast of NSW in September 2002.
Alex Cittadini and a boilermaker Adrian Presland were both charged with four counts of manslaughter after it was discovered that the vessel’s keel had been cut horizontally and re-welded insufficiently. Thanks to the brisbanetimes.com. Jump in the forum and comment.
