BROKEN DOWN SPEEDBOAT ½ MILE OFF SEAHOUSES GOLF COURSE

At 11.06hr on Wednesday 16th August 2017, UK Coastguard requested the launch of Seahouses Inshore Lifeboat, to assist a 5 metre (15ft) speedboat, broken down with 3 persons on board, ½ mile off Seahouses Golf Course.

Seahouses Inshore Lifeboat was launched and quickly located the casualty, which was taken in tow to the safety of Seahouses Harbour, where the casualty was met by Seahouses Coastguard Officers.

The operation was a simple recovery of a broken down vessel, in good weather conditions, and with no one in any immediate danger. Seahouses Inshore Lifeboat then returned to station at 12:45hr that day.
