RNLI crew goes to aid of fishing boat
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.
