Once launched, Amble Lifeboat was quickly on scene, and, after the skipper of the fishing vessel had cut the rope attaching the boat to the sea bed, a tow was established. The ‘MIZPAH’ was towed back to Amble and made secure on the fish quay before Amble Lifeboat returned to station and was mae ready for service once more.
