There was an early start for the volunteer crews of the Arbroath lifeboats when they launched just after 6.30 a.m. today (Monday, July 15) to assist a small fishing boat with a fouled propeller.

After receiving the request for assistance both the inshore lifeboat Robert Fergusson and all-weather lifeboat RNLB Inchcape were launched at approximately 6.40 a.m.

Upon arriving at the scene the RNLI crew members on board the inshore lifeboat were able to quickly establish a towline with the stricken vessel. The line was then transferred over to the all-weather lifeboat and the fishing boat was towed safely back to harbour.
