DetailsTenby’s RNLI inshore lifeboat was launched at 2.55pm on Wednesday 15th July, to go to the assistance of a 21ft speedboat that had suffered engine failure and was in danger of going onto the rocks at Monkstone.

The volunteer crew were quickly on the water and made best speed towards Monkstone where they soon spotted the disabled vessel. After making contact, the occupants requested a tow back to Saundersfoot.

After a brief tow, the casualty vessel and it’s occupants were soon safely alongside in Saundersfoot Harbour, so the lifeboat returned to station, arriving at 3.40pm.
