Narrative

The lifeboat was retasked from our previous job following reports of a vessel aground at Prestonpans.

On arrival an old Fifie fishing vessel was found aground. Due to the flooding tide, the vessel soon refloated but was holed.

The skipper then decided to beach the vessel nearby as he was not confident of making it to a harbour.

The lifeboat crew made sure the vessel was safe and anchored to the beach before returning to station.
