After the crew had assembled at the station the inshore boat was quickly launched.

It proceeded towards the vessel which was approximately two miles east of Dunbar.

Dunbar’s coastguard team had also been tasked.

After a short tow into the harbour at Dunbar, the vessel was moored up along side the pier, with the help of the 
coastguard team, to allow for maintenance to be carried out on it.

Dunbar’s lifeboat was then recovered and made ready for service a short time afterwards.
