The Oban Times - - News -

THE Oban RNLI lifeboat was called to as­sist a fish­ing ves­sel to the north-west of Lu­ing on Mon­day.

Oban’s Mora Edith Mac­Don­ald launched at 2.52pm to as­sist the boat. The ves­sel was re­ported to be in difficulty in the Sound of Lu­ing to the north-west of the Grey Dogs.

While Oban lifeboat was en route to the lo­ca­tion, an­other lo­cal ves­sel man­aged to take the fish­ing boat un­der tow and head north through Fladda to­wards Cul­lipool on Lu­ing.

Oban lifeboat met the two ves­sels and stood by while the stricken boat was towed into the har­bour and tied up safely on a moor­ing.
