Beaumaris Lifeboat requested to assist motor vessel with an engine problem..
At 1.19 pm on Saturday 21 May 2022 the volunteer crew members of the Beaumaris lifeboat received a page from U.K. Coastguard Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre at Holyhead to assist a broken-down four metre motorboat.
The Beaumaris Atlantic 85 inshore lifeboat Annette Mary Liddington with her volunteer crew launched at 1.34 pm and proceeded towards Caernarfon.
The lifeboat was advised that the vessel had been taken in tow by another vessel but that the towing vessel was having difficulties with the tow. Having ensured that all was well with the two adults aboard. an assessment was made by the helmsman as to the best course of action. It was decided for safety reasons that the boat should be towed back to the safety of the nearest mooring or berth and a tow was quickly established
The vessel was towed to her trailer by Moel Y Don and once this had been completed the lifeboat was released by the coastguard to return to her station.at Beaumaris to be refuelled and cleaned under the current Covid 19 instructions. Once this had been completed the crew left the station.
