First of all, well done to all concerned in this rescue. What is really interesting about this is the amount of resources devoted to what, in years gone by, would have been seen as not requirung the same response. Most of the equipment used with the exception of the helicopter seems to have been ineffective in reaching the hire boat. I also note that no mention is made of the BA's boat. It is a common mishap for boats and particualy hire boats to get stuck on the mud on Breydon (Its happened to me on my own boat in the past on more than one occasion!) So rather than having this heavy and expensive response, perhaps we should be looking at having equipment readily available that can evacuate people from this kind of situation. Now I am no expert on what is needed but perhaps experimental use of rescue sled type equipment used in flood rescue, along with other ideas should be investigated. In this particular rescue simply waiting for high tide with boat assistance standing by to pull the boat off would have sufficed. It would however have been a very different outcome in the case of a boat aground and on fire, where having readily available equipment able to be deployed swiftly would be essential.

Yes, with all these mudflats I would have expected the BA to be equipped with a small hovercraft, which would be able to go anywhere.

Hi Steve Yes why is it deemed necessary to evacuate people when all they need do is wait 6 hours for tide to change, i cant see that it is a emergency situation requiring this sort of response in day light hours with sun shinning and calm conditions. Am i missing something, Did they use it as a training exercise?. John

Firstly the BA is not an emergency organisation. Secondly do you think that tolls income should be spent on purchasing a very expensive piece of equipment like a hovercraft with the costs of housing, maintenance, training and staffing for the rare occasions it might be useful? I can’t remember any previous occasions when it has been deemed necessary to winch people off boats stuck on Breydon.

Also it was 5am. Do you think Breydon should be patrolled at that time? If so who pays for the extra staff and the double shifts of fuel? You guessed it - your tolls! boat-sail

Hemsby Broads Rescue (Broads Marley) was paged today to a assist a vessel that had suffered a fouled prop. The EMS vessel had recovered the 2 casualty vessels that days earlier had run aground, but then hit problems themselves calling for help.
Hemsby broads rescue quickly arrived on scene and it was decided to deploy our rescue sled due to the depth of water. We made way to the striken vessel and got the casualty onboard the sled and made way back to the broads lifeboat. The casualty was taken to the EMS second vessel.

Prior to us arriving on scene the Spirit of Breydon had been patrolling in the area, they spotted the EMS vessel in difficulty so offered assistance and tried to manoeuvre their boat to try to create a wash of water in hope that it would free up the stricken vessel to re float then tow them back into the channel, but as the tide was going out the water levels were far too low to do this so they could only hold off and monitor the situation until we arrived.

Hemsby would like to say thank you to the Spirit of Breydon for the assistance along with Gorleston Coastguard
