No rest for the wicked!

Just as we stepped out of our oilskins from the previous shout, our pagers went off once more. This time for a motor cruiser south of Anvil point. Despite having two engines, both had failed leaving him powerless and drifting as darkness was falling. No doubt he needed a tow.

Once again, in a pretty short time, we were on scene and had a couple of crew aboard and a tow rope rigged.  Indeed, a few short minutes after getting onboard, Dave and Ollie were tucking into a slice of cheese cake each! By the end of the shout, not only were the rest of our crew jealous, but also Poole lifeboat crew and the team at Portland coastguard!
