Both RNLI Baltimore lifeboats were called to assist a disabled fishing boat at 18:19 this evening 11th June. The Hardy 20 half decker with 2 persons on board was departing Sherkin Island when they experienced engine failure. The disabled vessel drifted onto Garrison point due to south easterly winds. When the all weather lifeboat arrived on scene one of the fishing crew had jumped onto rocks ashore in an attempt to keep the boat off the rocks in a dangerous surge.

Coxswain Aidan Bushe took the vessel in tow and brought her to safe moorings while the inshore lifeboat stood by. Once the boat had been secured the inshore life boat returned the 2 adult men to the safety of shore.

On board the all weather lifeboat were Coxswain Aidan Bushe, mechanic Jerry Smith, Brendan Cottrell, Sean McCarthy, Pat Collins, John O’Flynn and Ronnie Carthy
