Summary

Thorco Crystal was to berth at Humbug Point with the assistance of the tugs Sea Hotel (forward) and Arafura Sea Delta (aft). While coming alongside the port quarter, to pass up its tow line, the aft tug slid under the curve of Thorco Crystal's stern and made contact with its hull. A small hole, above the water line, resulted. Thorco Crystal berthed without further incident.

The ATSB will interview the directly involved parties, request copies of relevant documents conduct a desktop investigation. A draft of the report will be provided to the directly involved parties for comment, prior to publically releasing the report.
