Volunteer Crew Come to the Aid of Fishing Boat

Dunbar volunteer lifeboat crew today came to the rescue of a small fishing boat that ran out of fuel near the town’s East Beach.

The alarm was raised at 3.20pm after the crew of the Babble On boat was forced to drop anchor about three quarters of a mile off the shore as they were unable to make it into the harbour.

Dunbar’s D class in-shore lifeboat (ILB) Jimmy Miff was launched and towed the boat safely back into harbour.

After the callout the ILB returned to the boathouse and was refuelled and ready for service within the hour.

Crew: Gary Fairbairn, Douglas Wight, Adrian Lavery, Jamie Forrester
