25th July 2016
The RNLI Porthdinllaen volunteer crew were requested to launch at 1307 today (Monday, July 25th) to assist a local fishing vessel, the ‘Steel Venture’ (with 4 persons on board) which had broken down approx. 3 miles to the North West from Porthdinllaen. On arriving the vessel, it was found that some rope had tangled around it’s propeller. The ‘Steel Venture’ had to be towed back to Porthdinllaen, where she was beached (so that the rope could be entangled once the tide went out). The lifeboat returned to the boathouse shortly after.
