Tenby’s all-weather lifeboat launched to assist fishing vessel with fouled propellers . . . .

At 9.30am on Monday 30th October, Tenby’s relief all-weather lifeboat was requested to launch following the report that a 12-metre commercial fishing vessel had broken down one-mile south-east of Stackpole.

The vessel had lost all power, having fouled both propellers whilst fishing.

The volunteer crew were soon on the water and made their way to the casualty, arriving 20 minutes later. Once alongside, the crew of the casualty vessel requested a tow back to their home port of Milford Haven.

The vessel was then taken in tow back towards Milford Haven and once about 3 miles southeast of the entrance to Milford Haven Waterway, Angle lifeboat launched and took over the tow for the remaining few miles.

Tenby lifeboat was then stood down and returned to station, arriving at 11.30am.
