2.86 hours at sea


The lifeboat crew was tasked to a capsized vessel east of North Queensferry. Whilst making best speed to the area it was confirmed that Queensferry lifeboat had recovered two casualties from the water.
Kinghorn lifeboat was tasked to check the boat and potentially recover it. On arrival, it was assessed that the vessel was partly sunk and could not be towed. Flotsam around the vessel was recovered and the lifeboat stood by to provide safety cover for a potential recovery. Once the boat drifted ashore, all SAR assets were stood down.
