Missing RIB DSC alert

Just seen this on the MCA news web site ,
Humber Coastguard are asking for the owner of a 6.6 metre rigid inflatable MMSI number 235053194 to get in contact after an emergency VHF DSC alert sparked a fruitless search this afternoon.

At 3.11pm Humber Coastguard received a VHF DSC radio distress alert from a 6.6 metre rigid inflatable MMSI 23053194 number somewhere within the range of the Coastguards Cullercoats VHF aerial but with no position or further information as to the nature of the emergency. A search commenced across a large area, involving four lifeboats, two Coastguard Rescue Teams and the rescue helicopter R128 from RAF Leconfield with nothing found.

Humber Coastguard has been hampered in identifying basic essential information for search and rescue such as the current owner and vessel name because the MMSI database entry for this vessel has not been updated by subsequent owners of the craft. Coastguards have spoken with several previous owners without yet finding the current owner and therefore cannot determine if there are people at risk on this vessel right now or where the vessel is.

The original details for the vessel describe it as a 6.6 metre rigid hulled inflatable with a white hull and red tubes. Two previous names include Sidewinder and Pepsi.

Humber Coastguard Watch Manager Graham Dawson explains,
The DSC VHF radio distress alert allows a boat to raise the alarm at the touch of a button on the radio unit, but in order for rescue services to get help quickly to the right place it should include a position and be followed by voice communications, eg a Mayday call. For the system to work well it requires the MMSI database to be updated each time the vessel changes name and or owner. Failing to do this means valuable time and resources are wasted attempting to find more information to resolve an incident

Humber Coastguard rang me yesterday and I gave them what information I could about Richard who bought it off me. However, he may have sold it again since 2009. Richard lives in Shrewsbury, but I don't have anymore details for him.

The MMSI is still registered to Jimbo and although I de-registered it from the CG66 form when I sold it, it seems the curent owner didn't register the boat in its new location.

There is a lesson here, keep the CG66 form up to date if you buy a boat, so at least they have a phone number for you if its a false alarm.

My Old boat too !!!

Hi I thought there may be some discussion on here. The Coastguard rang me saturday late pm. but I could be little help.

I sold the boat in Late 2009 through Ebay (as my wife would not tow it and that meant launch & recovery was difficult so am thinking of something smaller (5m) ) to a guy from the North East who wanted it for Diving - apparently he was an early retired commercial diver. As it has been such a long time since I sold here I have few details left but I told the coastguard what I could.

Keep safe
