Fishing boat towed home

Boat launched : Atlantic 85

Date : Saturday 1 December

Launched at : 17:17

Returned at : 18:25

Weather : Clear with a NW wind F4.

Whilst returning from the previous incident the Atlantic 85 was asked to take over a tow. The fishing boat ‘Chinook’ had lost electrical power whilst fishing south of the Nab Tower and so could not start its engine. The Bembridge all-weather lifeboat went to its aid and towed it to the West Pole Beacon where the Atlantic 85 met it and took over the tow. ‘Chinook ‘ was brought into the harbour and taken to Sparkes Marina and the Hayling Lifeboat returned to the station.
