Lifeboat tows a stricken inflatable
OBAN Lifeboat was called out just before noon on Saturday after being asked by Stornoway coastguard to assist a rigid inflatable boat (RIB) with five people on board that had broken down at the southern approaches to the Sound of Kerrera.
The stricken vessel had been taken under tow by a local creel boat when the rescue crew arrived on scene at 12.07pm.
The lifeboat then took over and took the RIB back to its launch site in the Sound of Kerrera. The lifeboat was made ready for service at 11.58 pm.
