The lifeboat was tasked to recover a fishing boat skipper who had suffered an arm injury in the engine room of his boat.
The lifeboat was alongside the vessel within 15 minutes of being paged, and recovered the casualty to Kirkcaldy harbour where an ambulance took him to hospital.
Meanwhile, a lifeboat crewmember stayed on the fishing vessel with the casualty's companion and awaited the arrival of other local fishing boats to take the casualty vessel back to port.
