Earlier, on the previous day, the boat came to dock at Sinh Ton Island for repairs.

Technicians at the Sinh Ton-based Logistic Service Center found out that the broken refrigerating machine might lead to main engine failure and more serious damages.

The fault was fixed and a day later the trawler was able to depart the island to continue its off-shore fishing as scheduled.

The trawler is captained by Pham Tien and has 45 fishermen aboard.
