2/9/18, 17:31hrs. Team paged by Humber Coastguard to reports of a hire cruiser run aground on Breydon Water with 6 persons on board. The Gorleston ILB transferred the persons on to their ILB and safely transported them to the Yarmouth Yacht Station where team members greeted them and carried out a welfare check. #118/18.

So it did not run aground the engine just cut out close to the Yacht Station.  Am I the only one to think this is something of a over reaction?  Stardust always has at least two Water-men on board and is what 38/40 ft by 12.  I appreciate that that life is not quite as simply as it was when Topcraft and Hamptons were going strong but surely a tow in to the yacht station for a quiet disembarkation didn't have to wait for an hour, require roads to be closed and half the fire appliances in Lowestoft in attendance!  I realise that it may be useful practice but it does involve significant expense even given that volunteers may be involved

Hi Bill My thoughts entirely why didn't they tow it the short distance to yacht station and disembark on to the pontoon there it would then be at the deck level, they could have sat on board until minibus came from Beccles to collect them it was said they cut the iron railings to get them ashore the boat is basically a steel wide beam canal boat giving disabled/elderly people a day out on the broads, with a lift at rear for disembarking.John

My concern is, that seems to be the prevalent approach these days  If one keeps reacting to what could be  calling wolf what will eventually happen when a real emergency like the Brinks Day Boat capsize happens.  Oh it's just the wallies on the Broads lets save the cat first? I am not really criticising those that make a call just the wholly ignorant types who make the response, but then if you are sitting in a call centre in hull what do you expect.

We were at Oulton when this happened and the “word on the street” was that the engine had cut out and the vessel had run aground, however this was quite a while before the Fire Brigade etc turned up so I guess it wasn’t a knee jerk reaction I assume the decision was made to take the passengers because a/ they would have been there a while on a cool windy day and b/ taking the people off would have allowed the vessel to sit higher in the water and be re-floated sooner. The whole incident was over quite a long period of time and the boat was eventually towed back to the Yacht Station.

if it is to be it is up to me.
