Details
The lifeboat launched to a report of a broken down “Bayliner” motor cruiser off Herne Bay.

The lifeboat crew located the craft 1/2 mile north of the old Pier Head. The occupants had managed to restart the engine, but there was severe vibration present, so the lifeboat escorted the craft to Herne Bay Harbour, where the Coastguard Team were waiting to assist and give safety advice
