At 16.31hrs hrs Humber Coastguard requested that the Sheringham Lifeboat be launched to assist small cruiser with engine failure in position off Blakeney outfalls.
The Lifeboat crew managed eventually to get the outboard motor to fire but it was clear that the engine and/or fuel were contaminated.
The occupants of the small cruiser were obviously distressed and not too sure of their bearings or location. The Lifeboat Helmsman decided to accompany them as far as Wells quay and ensure they were safely moored before departing.
Good service professionally undertaken.
