Vessel aground sits out the tide

Weather : A dark wet night with a F5 SSW wind.

Solent Coastguard asked us to assist a fishing boat aground East of Thorney Island. Once on scene we set up a tow and began trying to pull the boat off, but as the vessel was hard aground it was not possible. The skipper agreed to sit out the tide and the lifeboat returned to station.
