Tasmanian police admit the chances of finding four fisherman alive are slim if their small boat has capsized in chilly waters off Hobart.

The four friends, including one Kiwi, set off at about 9am local time yesterday and the alarm was raised later in the day when they failed to return.

Four boats and two aircraft are searching for the 16-foot fibreglass vessel.
