The search for a boatie missing in dangerous seas, near Curtis Island, has been suspended due to bad weather.

62-year-old Craig Gordon set off to Sea Hill on Thursday November 12 - the last time he was seen by his family.

On Tuesday, November 18, Mr Gordon's vessel was found washed up on mud flats, near Balaclava Island.

Police had been searching for four days but by Thursday afternoon, air and sea search efforts were hampered by rain.

There are grave concerns for the experienced mariner because the passage of water is notoriously rough.

Police have suspended the search until more information comes available.
