A spokesman for Falmouth Coastguard said: "We think he had a fall on board. He sustained fractures to his leg and rib.We couldn't get him off [the vessel] last night because the weather was too bad."
The vessel was brought into Falmouth Bay this morning, where a helicopter from RNAS Culdrose winched the man to Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro.
