Charter-fishing-vessel-towed-to-safety-by-RNLI-Angle-lifeboat

Byline: A 10m charter fishing vessel, which broke down 20 miles off the South Pembrokeshire coast on Sunday (25 August), was towed to safety by RNLI Angle’s all weather lifeboat.
Page Content: The Tamar class lifeboat Mark Mason was launched at 9.26 am, at the request of Milford Haven Coastguard, and reached the Dale-based casualty, which had seven people on board, in just under an hour.

A tow was connected to the drifting vessel and the lifeboat brought her back to Dale. There, she was put in an alongside tow and taken to her mooring to be safely secured at 1.54pm. 

The lifeboat was released to return to her station, where she was rehoused at 2.25pm, after nearly five hours at sea.
