Coastguard requested launch of ALB to locate and assist MV with propeller fouled approx. 100m off shore from Caiplie Farm House and two miles from station with one person on board.
Because of ebbing tide and the size of vessel (20ft) the LOM & Coxswain agreed the ILB could cope with towing the casualty, confirmation also received from the CG.
Weather conditions were fine, ILB located the casualty established a tow and safely towed the vessel to Anstruther harbour. ILB re-housed as no further assistance required.
