The Iysha was taking on water. Crew Andrew Turner, Richard Miles and Steven Sheales were first on scene, followed by Jamie Smith, Karl Purenins, who brought two petrol powered pumps, and Jack Atkinson. Our pumps helped remove four feet of water from the fishing hold and engine room, assisting the two pumps already running. We left at 20h00, the vessel sitting about four inches higher in the water than when we found her, and the skipper of the vessel is assessing repairs.

As an independent Lifeboat we depend entirely on donations
