A second rescue operation is underway for a boat which was the subject of South Australia's largest search operation a fortnight ago.

Police said they received a call from a man — believed to be the boat's owner Tony Higgins — about 5:00am saying the Margrel was taking on water near Granite Island, off Victor Harbor, south of Adelaide.

They didn’t crumble under the tasteless words of higher-ups, but instead used that rejection to push them forward, to become better, to reach higher. Plus, now they’re filthy rich.

The same boat ran aground on a sandbar over the weekend after Mr Higgins tried to come ashore to buy supplies.

He eventually tied it to the Granite Island wharf but it is no longer there.

The causeway to the island was closed yesterday because of winds above 100 kilometres per hour.

Earlier this month, authorities searched for Mr Higgins and his friend Derek Robinson for four days between South Australia's Eyre Peninsula and Kangaroo Island after a friend reported them missing.

They were eventually found off the Coorong, south-east of Victor Harbor, on September 10.

Local freelance video journalist Gary Juleff said he was alerted before dawn, saying Mr Higgins had told police he was "knee deep in water" on board the boat.

California, Engine of U.S. Economy, Reeling From Double Blow of COVID-19 and Wildfires

  California, Engine of U.S. Economy, Reeling From Double Blow of COVID-19 and Wildfires Smoke and air pollution from wildfires will significantly impact the state's economy—particularly the tourism and hospitality industries, which have already been battered by the COVID-19 pandemic. "In a year when we've already had untold disruption to our lives, personal, work lives and everything else, this is just an additional disruption to the California economy," he told Newsweek. "Restaurants, travel, lodging, visits to the Napa wine country, visits to the California coast in Los Angeles... this is another hit to that whole industry, an industry that's already been hit pretty hard by the pandemic.

"When I got down here, nobody could see the boat," Mr Juleff said.

"The police went out on the causeway. Nobody could see him.

"They tried to phone him back — no answer — so the answer to this question is 'nobody knows'.

"They said there's nothing out there and we don't know where he is."

Police Commissioner Grant Stevens said police were "certainly doing what we can to identify his current location".

"That's what we're obligated to do. It does not come cheaply," he said.

"These efforts always come at a cost to the community, but we have an obligation to ensure the safety of everybody and we'll be doing that today."
