Both of Tenby’s lifeboats were launched at around 10.25 am this morning (Saturday, May 21) after a fishing vessel suffered a fouled propellor off Stackpole Head and was in danger of drifting onto the rocks.
The RNLI volunteer crews made best speed to the area, 10 miles west of Tenby, but as they were approaching the casualty vessel, it was being taken in tow by another fishing vessel, towards Stackpole.
After making sure the crew of the second fishing vessel were happy to continue towing, the inshore lifeboat returned to station, while the all-weather lifeboat escorted both vessels to Stackpole, before returning to station once the casualty vessel was safely moored.
