Assest: SR2

Tasking: Tender with engine failure 

Location: 50° 46’ 56.6” N 1° 21’ 17.51” W

Small tender out of Beaulieu River started having engine trouble just off Lepe Beach. Watching from SR Base, a crew member kitted up and waded out to the stricken tender to check on the situation. After the owner struggled to get the engine running, and only on his way around to Stanswood Bay, it was decided to launch SR2 for a tow. 
The crew attached a tow line and took the vessel around to Stanswood where the tow was transferred to Stanswood Beach Rescue who took the tender to shore.
