The key witness in convicted murderer Sue Neill-Fraser's appeal has recanted on her evidence given on the first day of hearings.
Meaghan Vass told the Supreme Court on Monday she was onboard the Bob Chappell's boat in Sandy Bay with two men the night he disappeared.
Director of Public Prosecutions Daryl Coates on Tuesday raised Can inconsistency with Vass' evidence from Monday when she mentioned a third man on the boat.
MORE ON THE SUE NEILL-FRASER CASE:
She said the third man was an associate of the two men who were on the boat.
"I made a mistake," Ms Vass said.
"I suffer from anxiety. I'm really not coping. I'm doing my best."
Mr Coates later put it to Ms Vass that two of the men she had named in Monday's hearing were not on the boat and she had been told to say that they were.
"Yes," Ms Vass repied.

"Is it the case you have no memory of being on that boat at all?" Mr Coates asked.
"Yes," Ms Vass said.
She said she had been told to name the two men by a woman who cannot be named due to a suppression order from the court.
