Vessel Towed to Ballycotton Harbour by Lifeboat-Update

Ballycotton RNLI lifeboat launched today, 12 July, to lend assistance to a 40 foot pleasure craft that ran into difficulties one mile east of Ballycotton lighthouse. The pleasure craft fouled its propeller on rope while on passage and sought assistance. A lifeboat crewmember was put aboard the pleasure craft and attempts were made to free the offending rope but without success. A towline was established and the casualty was towed to Ballycotton harbour, where they arrived safely at 16:00.
