ALB Launched to Creel Boat with Gearbox Failure

Dunbar Lifeboat was paged today to a creel boat with Gearbox failure. Just after 12:23 the creel boat Charlie Boy was fishing North of Dunbar when he suffered Gearbox failure. The Casualty made contact with Aberdeen Coastguard requesting assistance and passed his position across as 1 1/2 miles North Of Dunbar. Dunbar Lifeboat was paged and launched at 12:38 from her mooring at Torness. Once on scene it was decided that the vessel be towed in rather than try and fix it at sea with the choppy sea conditions.
