Dunbar RNLI:  “It was a rude awakening for Dunbar’s volunteer lifeboat crew this morning (12 Nov.) when they were called out at 1.30am to rescue a fishing boat that had run out of fuel. It was the third shout this week after local boat Spitfire became stranded three miles north west of the town.

The ALB launched from Torness shortly after 2am and was on scene around 20 minutes later. A tow was set up and the ALB had the Spitfire safely back in Dunbar harbour in half an hour. 

The RNLI’s advice for any sea-going, motor-powered vessel is to always make sure you have enough fuel for the trip, carry reserves and regularly maintain your engine.”
