Fishing boat rescued after electrics fail

Tue, 20 Aug 2013

Douglas lifeboat was called out yesterday to rescue a fishing vessel which was suffering from electrical problems.

It was launched just before 5pm to help the trawler which was 12 miles south east of Douglas.

Four crew were on-board the boat which was powerless after the electrics failed.

It was towed back into Douglas harbour by the lifeboat – a journey which took almost four hours.
