Called to K8 Anchorage for a Vessel Adrift

Whilst on a routine exercise the lifeboat was tasked following a 999 call to Forth Coastguard.

A 12ft day boat was disabled approximately 2 miles east of Kinghorn near the K8 anchorage. The lifeboat was alongside within 10 minutes, and towed the vessel to Pettycur harbour.

The casualty vessel had no lifejackets, distress flares, or a VHF radio onboard.

Once the vessel was secured at Pettycur, the volunteer crew resumed their exercise.
