ALB & ILB
Both boats requested to launch to search an area between Fifeness & St Andrews after activation of an EPIRB previously registered to vessel in Anstruther harbour.
On route to location, it was ascertained that the EPIRB may be on shore in an industrial unit close to the search area. When confirmed both boats stood down although re-tasked to investigate a possible Mayday call from a local fishing vessel picked up by another local vessel.
ILB checked out that the vessel and crew were safe, when confirmed both boats returned to station.
