Helensburgh-RNLI-Lifeboat-attends-fishing-boat-aground-in-the-Holy-Loch

Byline: At 1525 hours on Friday 7th March, 2014 Belfast Coastguard requested the assistance of Helensburgh RNLI lifeboat with an attempt to refloat a commercial fishing boat that was aground in the Holy Loch.
Page Content: It appeared that the vessel had gone aground the previous evening and two of its crew were on board attempting to refloat it on the rising tide.  After launching, the lifeboat proceeded to the Holy Loch where they located the commercial 12 metre fishing boat, hard aground, some 10 metres from the beach.  Efforts to right the vessel were unsuccessful and, as the fishing boat’s gunwales were below the rising sea level, the lifeboat’s salvage pump proved ineffective.  The lifeboat conveyed the fishing boat’s crew to shore where they were going to organise a commercial salvage.  The lifeboat returned to base and was reported to be ready for service again at 1750 hours.
