Casualty Motor cruiser
Wind SE 3
Launch time 1515
Recovery Time 1412
Crew Dave Parry, Richard Curtis, Steve Wynn.
The lifeboat launched to assist a 28′ motor cruiser broken down with an overheated engine near Fowley Island in The Swale.
The crew located the craft at anchor, in very shallow water, south of the island. The skipper had been able to restart the engine, so the vessel was escorted to a mooring in South Deep, then taken in tow alongside the lifeboat to assist in picking up the mooring.
The two occupants were happy to await the flood tide to return to Conyer Creek, so the lifeboat was released to return to station.
