Hawaii Aloha Off The Beach; Aaron Bemner

Updates


January 10, 2015

Hawaii Aloha came ashore right here in the early hours of January 3rd 2015 after being rolled in large seas.  All but one crew made it safely ashore.  She was searched thoroughly for seaman Aaron Bremner to no avail, with coast guard and Fire and Rescue searching diligently along the Kona coast for 4 days before calling off the search.  Now just seven days after the tragic event, Hawaii Aloha is no more.  She has been completely removed from the beach and now lies in a landfill.

YWAM Ships Kona remains very grateful for the tremendous effort by all who searched for Aaron and rescued the crew from the viking 20 man life raft.  We are especially grateful for the kindness and professional manner in which our crew and YWAM volunteers were treated.  Thanks goes to Dan Mersberg and Ed Underwood of the Department of Land and Natural Resources for their efforts to quickly remove the vessel before any fuel made its way to the ocean.
