Searay Sports Boat with engine trouble

Boat Launched : Atlantic 85

Date : Saturday 12 march

Launched at : 14:40

Returned at : 16:40

Weather : Foggy with a light SW F2 wind

UK Coastguard asked us to go to a power boat with engine failure in the Thorney Channel. The Atlantic 85 was launched and found the casualty, a Searay Sports boat with 6 occupants and a dog. They had anchored and after a conversation with UK Coastguard it was agreed that we would tow them back to Chichester Marina as the engine still would not start. Once safely back the lifeboat returned to its station.
