what about to remove the hazard to shipping?

Thats known as keeping a lookout ,,lol
the lifeboat is a there for the initial saving of lives and is not a salvage boat ,though in most cases its safer to tow a boat back in than start transfering persons between boats , Though perhaps with the onsett of cold or hyperthermia or shock its better to get the casualtys back to shore ,
if the owners want to set up a recovery or salvage its up to them . the coastguard would broadcast a securitee warning to other vessles if they thought there was any danger of it becoming an hazard .

Fairy nuff. I just would have thought that in a relatively inshore location they wouldn't just abandon something unless they thought it was about to sink.

Maybe they carry a DeWalt and a hole saw on the rib

TWO LIVES SAVED IN SUNDAY STORM

05/07/2010
Kinghorn RNLI Lifeboat volunteers were called out on Sunday to the report of a speedboat adrift off Portobello.

Forth Coastguard received numerous emergency calls around 5pm on Sunday afternoon of reports of a vessel in difficulty off Portobello with four persons on board.

Kinghorn Lifeboat crew were paged at 5.05pm and launched 5 minutes later.

Helmsman Scott McIllravie recalls the rescue “We made our way across the Forth in squally, gale force conditions and steep seas. Visibility was almost non-existent at times due to the spray being whipped up by the wind. Once on scene it took us about 15 minutes to find the boat due to patchy communications with informants and very poor visibility.”

“Once we located the boat we discovered that two people had managed to swim ashore earlier but the boat was drifting fast and the other two casualties just stayed in and held on. We recovered them to the Atlantic 85 lifeboat and landed them ashore to the local coastguard at Portobello beach.”

It is understood the speedboat had been recently purchased.

Scott McIllravie continued “it's a timely message about knowing your limits and only going to sea if you can do so safely. This means having some basic safety equipment including lifejackets, suitable clothing, a means of communication such as a VHF radio, and flares.

Also joining Scott on this rescue were Michael Chalmers, Steven Wallace and Iain Tulloch. The tractor driver who launched the Lifeboat was Evelyn Stoker.

Kinghorn Lifeboat Station is preparing for their annual Open Day which will be held this Saturday, 17th July between 12pm and 4pm at Kinghorn Beach. This is your opportunity to see the Lifeboat ‘Tommy Niven’ up close, and see a rescue demonstration. There will also be stalls and fundraising events to help keep the RNLI afloat.


By Neil Chalmers (transitional LPO)
Pretty good going since, the rescue was about 8 Miles from Station, but the pounding the must have taken, getting there must been exhausting...I think the boat in the conditions on Sunday would have sank quickly...I could not believe anybody was out on Sunday esp @ 1700hrs.

The gales hit the coast around noon, and at 1400 hrs I was lashing sails on dried up moored boats since sail covers were coming off.

The Coastguard advised/confirmed that the race planned that day should be cancelled. this was at 0830 hrs on Sunday. Predicting F10!

Moral to this story: check with coastguard before going out, or at least check the weather forecasts.

The RNLI crew make it look easy, because of the training and equipment that they get, the conditions on Sunday nothing was easy that day.

regards

Scott
