0.95 hours at sea


Following a VHF DSC distress call from a vessel in the Methil area a search was launched of the area.

After some searching and liaison with local CRT it was established that the vessel had been renamed and the DSC alert belonged to a 24'yacht. This vessel was soon located and it was established that there were no issues. When the boat had been purchased the radio set had not been re-registered and it appeared the casualty was not familiar with the operation of the radio set.
