Called to Kirkcaldy for a Vessel Aground

People Assisted: 1

Launched to a fishing boat in trouble at the west end of Kirkcaldy Esplanade. The occupant was unable to start his engine so was driven ashore by the prevailing weather. The boat then took on water which meant the lifeboat couldn't tow it free. The Fire Brigade arrived and pumped out the boat which was then towed to Kirkcaldy Harbour.
