Lansiwyd y John D.Spicer heddiw (dydd Mawrth) am 1558, at gwch bysgota ‘Dory’ fechan oedd gyda problemau peirianyddol, tua 2 filltir i’r Gogledd o Borthdinllaen, gyda 2 berson ar ei bwrdd. Roedd y tywydd yn ffafriol gyda gwyntoedd ysgafn o’r Dwyrain. Tynnwyd y cwch i Drefor gan gyrraedd y pier am 1704. Dychwelodd y bad achub nôl i Borthdinllaen erbyn 1735.
The John D.Spicer was launched today (Tuesday) at 1558 to a report of a small dory fishing boat with engine failure. 2 persons were on board, at a position approx 2 miles North of Porthdinllaen. Weather conditions – calm with light Easterly winds. The lifeboat was alongside the vessel within 6 minutes of launching – and towed the casualty back to Trefor (where it had originally set off from). The lifeboat and tow were alongside Trefor Pier at 1704, where the casualty vessel was transferred on to the shore. The John D.Spicer departed Trefor at 1716, arriving back at Porthdinllaen at 1735.
