Called to Fairway Buoy for a Vessel Disabled

People Assisted: 1

The lifeboat crew were called to the aid of the 35ft fishing vessel "Fortune II" which had broken down about 2 miles East of the Fairway Buoy (between Methil and Gullane). The lifeboat took the vessel in tow to Port Seton, where another fishing vessel "Emma Jane" took her in tow awaiting enough tidal clearance to enter the harbour.
