Boaties are being encouraged to stay alert and know the current environment they are in, after a fishing vessel ran aground at the weekend.
The 'Matahari' got stuck late on Saturday night at Mooloolabah, and hundreds of locals turned out on Sunday to watch the rescue effort.
Rescue Liaison Officer Bryan Beck was on the scene.
He says accidents like this rarely happen.
"In my life time at Coastguard, that has happened twice," Mr Beck says.
"The first time it was slightly different circumstances and it was in gale force conditions, whereas it was quite calm over the weekend."
Salvagers say removing the boat will be a tricky operation.
