RNLI-Angle-lifeboat-alerted-to-crippled-motor-boat

Byline: RNLI Angle’s all weather lifeboat was alerted on Friday night (February 20) to go to the aid of a motor boat which had fouled her propeller off Hazelbeach, near Neyland, on the Milford Haven Waterway.

The Tamar class lifeboat Mark Mason was launched shortly before 10pm and found that the 6m vessel, with one person on board, had fouled her propeller on a tug mooring.

The vessel’s outboard engine was already raised and the propeller was visible, so the lifeboat’s Y Boat went alongside the casualty to assist in the removal of the rope.

With the propeller now free and the motor boat’s engine working, the lifeboat and Y Boat escorted the casualty to Neyland. There, the Y Boat assisted the occupant in securing the vessel safely to the pontoon.

The Y Boat was recovered and the lifeboat was released at 11.32pm to return to her station, where she was rehoused shortly after midnight.
