i recovered a tender 2 years ago for holyhead coastguard - someone had reported seeing it drifting and empty. whilst we took it under tow (after checking it was empty) the owner contacted the coastguard to say he had just realised he had lost it cos the towing eye had broken off, in case it was found.
i told them id like to return it to the owner, which i did - in return i got 50quid for fuel and a bottle of wine!
