Body of tech entrepreneur Andrew Findlay found week after tragic boat accident

“It appears they’ve … been swept by a large wave that possibly capsized the vessel and [has] thrown both men into the ocean,” McNulty said.


“It was violent sea conditions and a violent accident that occurred.”

Neither of the men were wearing lifejackets.

McNulty said he could not fault the boat, a 7.8-metre inflatable rib estimated to weigh four tonnes, but said the pair was travelling too close to the Watsons Bay cliff face.

“This was a tragic accident that police believe could have been avoided.”

The search effort for Findlay had consisted of three Marine Rescue NSW boats on Thursday and Saturday, and five on Friday, a volunteer crew from Botany Port Hacking, the Westpac Rescue Helicopter and NSW Surf Lifesaving jetskis along with NSW Police divers.

Divers searched 1000 metres of underwater shoreline, while the area of search was expanded nine kilometres east, spanning from South Head to Cape Solander, before scaling back the search on Saturday afternoon.
