Called to Seafield for a Vessel Disabled

People Assisted: 2

The lifeboat crew were called to a 16' fishing vessel which had suffered engine failure approximately 0.5 miles east of the East Vows rocks at Seafield.

The volunteer crew arrived on scene and took the vessel under tow to Kirkcaldy harbour where it was secured alongside to allow the casualty crew to make the necessary repairs.

The lifeboat then returned to station to wash and fuel the lifeboat, which takes a further hour after recovery.

Boat Crew: M Chalmers, M Davidson, K Davidson
