A 35ft cabin cruiser taking on water off Crookhaven called for assistance in the early hours of this morning Monday 15 July 2013. The call for assistance was issued at 01:55 and within minutes the RNLI all weather Lifeboat Alan Massey was under way. On arrival Coxswain Kieran Cotter and his crew assessed the stricken vessel which had 3 adult males on board. The lifeboat pumped out the cruiser. Seawater was still being taken on due to a cracked bolt which was then plugged. The lifeboat towed the cabin cruiser to O’Donovans Boat yard at Oldcourt, near Skibbereen, before returning to Baltimore harbour at 07:50.
