The vessel was moored in St Mullins overnight and was spotted by the owner of the Mullichain cafe as it started submerging this morning.

Quick thinking Martin O Brien ran first to see if there was anyone on board and then put a picture on facebook as they tried to track down the owner.

Martin told KCLR news the man was distraught.
