A 40ft motor-cruiser which sought help through Solent Coastguard after reporting engine failure, was eventually towed into Cowes by the local RNLI lifeboat yesterday (Wednesday).
The motor-cruiser, Mi Gemm, with four persons aboard, was in Thorness Bay when problem was reported. The lifeboat, with Patrick Moreton at the helm, was launched just after midday and was soon on the scene.
Officers from Hampshire Constabulary’s Marine Unit also assisted in the incident, after it was feared the vessel was drifting towards the shore.
