Great White Shark Attacks Boat
<snip>

A 5 1/2-metre Great White shark terrified three anglers when it lunged from the water and sank its teeth into the side of their small fishing boat, the skipper said.

Gary Dodunski said the shark, which was bigger than his boat, charged as fishing mate Shane Goble tried to land a fish he had on his line off the city of New Plymouth on North Island's west coast.

Said Goble: "When I tried to lift my fish aboard, the shark launched itself out of the water and onto the side of the boat."

The force of the striking shark pushed the vessel 2m sideways when it hit, Dodunski told National Radio.

His daughter, Michelle Dodunski, said the shark was within centimetres of her face as it grabbed the 5m boat in its jaws
