Haydn Miller assists sailing vessel with fouled prop

Tenby’s RNLI all-weather lifeboat launched shortly after 5pm on Saturday 24th June after the crew of a 25ft sailing yacht reported that they had fouled their propeller off 1st Point.

The volunteer crew were alongside the casualty vessel within minutes of hitting the water and launched the y-boat to get a better look at what had fouled the casualty vessel’s propeller.

It turned out to be a keep pot and was released using a boat hook, allowing the crew of the yacht, which had been on passage from Swansea, to moor in the bay off Tenby’s North Beach.

The lifeboat then returned to station, rehousing at 6pm.
