An interim report by the Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) said:
"Initial findings indicate the deceased were poisoned by carbon monoxide.
"A 'suitcase' type portable, petrol-driven generator had been installed in the motor cruiser's engine bay to supply the boat with 240v power.
"The generator had been fitted with an improvised exhaust and silencer system which had become detached from both the generator and the outlet on the vessel's side.
"As a result, the generator's exhaust fumes filled the engine bay and spread through gaps in an internal bulkhead into the aft cabin where the mother and daughter were asleep."

"When the owner of the boat awoke in the boat's forward cabin, he was suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning but was able to raise the alarm. The mother and daughter could not be revived.
"The boat's carbon monoxide sensor system did not alarm because it was not connected to a power supply."
