The Nelson Marlborough rescue helicopter was called out after an emergency beacon was activated.

The 7-metre aluminium crab fishing boat was found 100 metres off shore near the Port Motueka bar at about 1.30pm. The man was found further out, clinging to floating items.

A nearby boat collected the man who was then taken to shore. He was uninjured.
