The Atlantic 85 was launched in response to 999 calls made to the Coastguard about a 19 foot fishing boat with engine failure. The vessel was found in the Mill Rythe channel with three crew on board but with no lights, lifejackets or flares and no-one knew how to operate the VHF radio. A crewmember was put on board and the boat was towed to its mooring close to Northney Marina. The casualty crew members were then left on-board to take their tender back to the Ship Inn launch ramp where they were met by the Coastguards.
