Boat needs a tow.

Boat launched : Atlantic 85

Date : Saturday 24 November

Launched at : 09:00

Returned at : 09:45

Weather : Steady moderate rain and with a F4/5 E wind.

Solent Coastguard, in response to a request from Sparkes Marina, asked for assistance for a vessel whose engine had failed. The Atlantic 85 was launched and went to the vessel in the Emsworth Channel, to find her aground on the mud. She had no VHF and had not been able to contact the Coastguard by mobile phone.

A crew member went on board and the vessel was re-floated and taken under tow to Sparkes Marina. The lifeboat then returned to the station and was made ready for service.
