Haydn Miller assists 7m rib broken down off St Govans . . . .

At 3.30pm on Wednesday 25th August, Tenby’s RNLI all weather lifeboat launched following a report that a 7 metre rib had suffered engine failure half a mile south of St Govans.

The occupants of the vessel had an auxiliary engine but they were failing to make headway against the tide.

Whilst the volunteer lifeboat crew were making best speed to the area, a local fishing boat that happened to be in the area responded to a call from Milford Haven Coastguard and pulled the rib clear of danger and stood-by until the Haydn Miller arrived.

Once the lifeboat was on scene, the occupants of the casualty vessel requested a tow back to Freshwater East.

The rib and her 6 occupants were soon safely back at Freshwater East and once safely ashore, the lifeboat returned to station, arriving at 5:20pm
