A lawyer who lost his boat in a boating accident in the north of Sydney has taken to social media to mourn the loss of his boat.
The Lincoln lawyer, who did not want his last name published, lost his kayak and other belongings after it capsized on the south-west shore of the Yarra River at around 8.30am on Saturday.
He said his boat had been sitting on the bank for more than a month and was a “living symbol of the people of NSW”.
“It’s a boat that has been around for years,” he said.
“We’re going to miss it.”
The attorney was on a trip from his office in Southport to Bondi Beach with his wife and their young son when the accident happened.
“My wife is a big boat enthusiast, so we had the boat towed,” he explained.
“It was a little late to the party but it was going to be the perfect day to see what’s new.”
The boat is a custom-built custom-made boat with the capacity to accommodate six people, a passenger and a small child.
“The boat was a beautiful wooden boat and we’ve always been avid paddlers,” Mr Morrison said.
The attorney said his family was devastated.
“I’m so devastated by what’s happened.
I’m devastated by my wife and kids, I’m upset by the loss and I’m heartbroken for everyone involved,” he added.”
People are going to have to come together, and hopefully we can find some resolution in the near future.”
