And it seems to have become a free breakdown service! I wonder what "danger" could befall the occupants in Catfield Dyke - I suppose they could have been attacked by a bittern or untamed bearded tit!

Humber Coastguard paged Hemsby Broads Rescue to assist a vessel with a fouled prop at St Benet's Abbey late afternoon on the 20th of June. Thankfully, the vessel was able to get underway without further assistance, so Hemsby Broads Rescue stood down on route and returned to base.

"And it seems to have become a free breakdown service!"

Doesn't it just! Called out as an emergency for a fouled prop at St Benet's? On a hot summer's day. Not exactly the back-of-beyond or dangerous tidal waters.

Been hit by another boat? Report the incident to the Marine Accident Investigation Branch’s dedicated accident reporting line on 023 8023 2527 which is monitored 24 hours a day.  Help to make the Broads safer.

Hemsby Broads Rescue was paged at 20:24 on the 25th of June by Humber Coastguard to assist a Motor Cruiser which had experienced engine difficulties near St Olaves with two persons on board.

Also on scene was the Gorleston Coastguard team. Once it was established that the persons on board were fit and well, a member of the Hemsby crew boarded the vessel to assist with the piloting of the Cruiser, which was taken under tow by Hemsby Broads Rescue and relocated to a safe mooring at St Olaves. The occupants secured the vessel with assistance from the Coastguard team.

Hemsby Broads Rescue was then stood down and returned to the station to prepare the equipment for the next emergency call. We thank Gorleston Coastguard for their assistance and our crew members who remained at the station to assist with the washdown and equipment preparation.

Yesterday the 26th of June, Hemsby Broads Rescue was paged by Humber Coastguard at 16:34 to reports of an open vessel with one person on board, which had run into difficulties on Martham Broad. Despite boundary posts and do not enter signs, the vessel ventured onto the broad and became fouled with the dense sub-surface vegetation on the board. Also paged were Winterton and Gorleston Coastguard Teams.

On arrival on the scene, it became apparent that a second small open craft with four persons on board was also experiencing difficulties close by. They had ventured beyond the warning signs to assist the first vessel and become fouled.

With some trim adjustments to the engine and a few stops to clear our prop, we took the first vessel under tow to the main channel via the second casualty vessel to ensure the occupants were safe and well. We relocated the first vessel to Martham, where we handed over to the Coastguard Teams, before returning to the Broad to recover the second vessel. This was in a slightly more hazardous area due to the sub-surface vegetation, so the crew prepared a throw line, the Rescue boat was taken within a safe distance, and the line was thrown to the casualty vessel.

They were then taken under tow to the main channel. At this point, they were able to proceed under their own power. Hemsby Broads Rescue was then stood down and returned to base to prepare for the next call for assistance. We thank both  Coastguard teams for their assistance and also the crew members who remained on station to assist with the clean-down.

We want visitors and locals to enjoy the summer on the broads, but we also want you to be safe. Please take heed of warning signs, that way, you stay safe, and we don't have to put our crew and equipment in harm's way. Please also wear lifejackets when you are on the water. Finally, no matter how good your intentions are, we would also advise that you call for assistance rather than attempting to rescue boats in difficulty yourselves.
