The Matahari was dashed against the rocks at Mooloolaba Beach for hours as it ran aground late last night.
INSURERS have come to a decision on the fate of the Matahari, as workers face a race against time to remove the boat.
UPDATE: A crew member fell asleep at the wheel of the crabbing vessel, not the boat's skipper.
A DECISION on how the 15m crabbing vessel beached at Mooloolaba has been delayed again, more than two days after the Matahari smashed into the rocks.
Retrieval crews are currently debating how to recover the marooned crabbing vessel currently embanked on the Mooloolaba foreshore.
