Trochus is a story of one man’s dream to make an equitable life for himself and his family. After being forced out of his previous livelihood, Warren Hill recovers a wrecked vessel considered to be near-unsalvageable, intending to transform it into a vessel tailor-made for collecting trochus shells off the Queensland coast. The salvage and rebuild of the vessel is only the start. From the time the boat was launched they were fraught with obstacles thrown from numerous directions, making it near impossible to get the boat to sea. A simple business venture becomes a lightning rod for unwanted attention from enemies unknown. And things only get worse after the vessel makes its maiden voyage as the Lara Star. The story of the Lara Star is one of great dreams and determination, but also one of greed and corruption. Banks, the local police force and politicians could be either friend or foe. It’s a story of sabotage, extortion and attempted murder – a compelling maze of events so random it’s almost unbelievable. It all happened in a Central Queensland coastal city. Unfortunately it is all true.
