The 24 meter long fishing vessel Hercules Zk-65 went ashore at Schiermonikoog, Netherlands. The Hercules Zk-65 had suffered steering failure with its rudder and drifted ashore. A rescue vessel arrived on scene along with a salvage company, but their first attempt to refloat the fishing vessel failed. Another attempt was made on the next high tide the following day. They were successful and the Hercules Zk-65 was escorted to Lauwersoog where it was inspected for damage. No reports of injuries or pollution released.
