A TINANA man has died in a tragic boating accident in Moreton Bay.
It is understood Darrel Francis, 75, was on the boat with his cousin when the boat capsized yesterday afternoon.

He could not be revived and died on scene a short time later.
Mr Francis was flown to hospital where he later died.
Police will prepare a report for the coroner.
