It’s designed to catch hire boats as we we don’t want them floating out to sea.  Playful

It doesn't matter how big the sign is, if the engine has lost power, then they are only going to drift with the tide.

Question for the day, were they the numpties for having an engine failure? or was it the people without all the facts who just assumed they had done something wrong?

If only we were all perfect!  Cheers

Not seen you here for a while Keith.

Very unfortunate if the crew had an engine failure right at the point of reaching the end of The Bure. How scary. Or did it happen before and they drifted down through Vauxhall etc first ? Every scarier ! I would not want to be going along any stretch in that vicinity without an engine.

Hi Karen,

The fuller report is below,

#16 21 June - 12:02
ILB ‘Pride of Leicester’ was tasked by Humber coastguard to assist a yacht which had lost engine power and drifted under the Haven bridge with persons onboard.
The ILB ‘Pride of Leicester’ was made haste to the location.  Once on scene the crew assessed the situation and decided to secure a tow line to the bow of the yacht and pull the stricken vessel free.
One crew member went onboard the yacht to conduct welfare checks on the persons on board and to help to secure the tow line to the bow.
The two remaining crew secured the tow line to the ILB ‘Pride of Leicester’ and expertly pulled the vessel free in the first attempt.
The ILB ‘Pride of Leicester’ then slowly towed the vessel to the yacht station with a crew member still onboard the yacht to help with the steering.
The yacht was moored alongside with help from the coastguard.  The ILB ‘Pride of Leicester’ stayed on site for a short time to ensure everyone was fine and the vessel was then passed onto the Yacht station and Gorleston Coastguard.
The Crew then made their way back to the station.
Well done to the Crew, Jackson Wright (Helm), Darren Hunt (Crew) and Paul Dormer (Crew).
Thank you to Gorleston Coastguard for the picture.
If any coastal emergency dial 999 or 112 and ask for the Coastguard.
Take Care near the cliff edge.

Can't feel I could criticise any commenters here as they responded to the report from emergency services which says a hire boat became stuck under that bridge. No mention of an emergency unfolding before that with engine failure and a boat drifting dangerously towards the port and sea. I suppose anyone would expect the report to be accurate and not missing any vital facts ( unlike perhaps a news article, often incorrect or incomplete ! On the balance of probabilities, and with the increasing number of inexperienced hirers and incidents, it was a fair assumption.

Thanks for the full story Keith which you posted as I was adding my further comments.  The brief report was not a good indication of what had happened. Appreciate why they do a brief one but a mention of engine failure or drifting would have helped.

Thanks again

Karen

After soooooo many years witnessing idiotic behaviour on the Broads, I have to admit to jumping to the wrong conclusion. Perhaps these callout reports could give a little more information initially?

Regards, Ray.

Hi Karen,

I believe Steve's reports come from the HM Coastguard who only provide the briefest of details and more importantly do not provide blame, mitigation or speculation. They report on the operation in hand, not the lead up to it.

Some of the comments that can be found on other social media groups regarding this incident are frankly shocking.

The report I posted came from the Great Yarmouth and Gorleston Lifeboat who have their own presence on Facebook and as a charitable organisation tend to publicise their work to help with fund raising. Again though they never apportion blame.

Whatever the cause, to get stuck under Haven, but not Acle Road or Vauxhall, surely it must have come across Breydon Water.
