Reason: Amble Lifeboat launched to the motor cruiser “WINKLE” who had reported a loss of power, two miles South of Amble. On reaching the casualty and after putting a crewman onboard to assist, it was decided to tow the vessel back into Amble Marina as the casualty was only managing three knots. The tow was rigged and the vessel towed back into Amble Marina and once safely along side, the lifeboat returned back to station.
