Criccieth-lifeboat-launches-to-assist-broken-down-power-boat

Byline: At 2.28pm on July 7th, 2013 volunteer crew members from Criccieth’s RNLI lifeboat station were requested to launch and assist a power boat suffering from engine failure approximately 3 miles south-west of Criccieth.

The 19 foot powerboat named ‘The Heff’ had earlier set off from Pwllheli Marina on a fishing trip with two persons on-board.  Realising that it was suffering from engine failure and drifting, its owner wisely dropped anchor and contacted HM Coastguard.  

Criccieth’s Atlantic 85 class lifeboat, Doris Joan, was tasked and promptly despatched.  Once on scene, the crew established a tow with the stricken power boat, whilst also requesting that Pwllheli’s inshore rescue boat, Leslie and Peter Downes, be sent to take over the tow as they neared Pwllheli Marina.  Care of the power boat was handed over to Pwllheli RNLI off Penychain.
