Called to Leven for a Misc
People Assisted: 0
The volunteer lifeboat had just returned home from the previous callout when they were tasked by Aberdeen Coastguard to investigate a possible capsized vessel off Leven beach.
It turned out to be a tree trunk which was likely to have been washed offshore by the recent high spring tides and high river levels.
The 5m trunk had a small marker buoy attached to it, however the crew took the log under tow back to the beach to prevent it becoming a hazard to navigation in the Firth of Forth. The local Coastguard Rescue Team also attended the callout and assisted on the beach.
Boat Crew: M Chalmers, M Davidson, K Davidson
