Wind: N 2/3
Visibility: Good
Sea state: Slight
Time of launch: 1706hrs
Time of return: 1750hrs


Boats launched: ALB + ILB

Reason: For the second time today, Amble Lifeboat was called into action after a 16ft boat reported mechanical failure, approximately 1/2 mile north of the harbour, with 2 POB. Once on scene the Lifeboat attached a tow line and proceeded back to Amble. Once inside the harbour the casualty was put alongside a fishing vessel while the ALB returned to station and the crew launched the ILB to tow the vessel into the marina to his berth where he could assess what the problem was.
