Shout number 1 – Wednesday 24th July
Amble all-weather lifeboat The Four Boys was launched at 15.30 hrs on Wednesday when a call came in that a 26ft boat had suffered mechanical failure.
The vessel was located just outside the south pier of Amble harbour and was drifting towards cliffs. The vessel managed to get an anchor rigged to slow down the drift. Amble inshore lifeboat Mildred Holcroft was the first to arrive on scene and quickly placed a volunteer crewmember on board to assess the situation. Once it was clear that the three persons on board were all well, a tow line was rigged to The Four Boys and the larger lifeboat towed the casualty back to Amble Marina for investigation.
