Called to Kirkcaldy for a Vessel Disabled

People Assisted: 3

The volunteer crew was tasked to assist a boat which had broken down off the Vows rocks, south of Kirkcaldy. The boat had been on passage from Port Edgar to Elie and the engine would not start after a break.

The lifeboat was quickly on scene and a tow was established. The boat was taken to Kirkcaldy harbour where it was safely tied up to enable the owner to effect repairs.

The lifeboat then returned to station.
