A power boat en-route from Windsor to Chichester Marina had complete engine failure when in sight of the harbour entrance. The lifeboat was launched, quickly reached the casualty and set up a tow, and brought her into the harbour. The four crew on board were relieved to reach calmer waters.  The tow was then changed to an alongside tow (pictured being completed) and the vessel was taken into Sparkes Marina.
