Call Out For Stonehaven Crew

Lifeboats News Release

Stonehaven RNLI were tasked today at 11.30hrs by HM Coastguard.

They were asked to assist a creel boat whose props had got snagged, south of Stonehaven. The creel boat ‘Even Less’ had been fishing at Trelung Ness when the props became snagged in lines. The Atlantic 85 lifeboat ‘Jamie Hunter’ with 4 crew on board, launched and arrived on scene. The volunteer crew assisted in cutting the boat free and away from the rocks.

The boat was then able to start and make it’s way back to harbour with the lifeboat following behind to assist should anything go wrong.

The lifeboat was then refuelled and made ready and back on station at 14.00hrs
