Louise McNicoll and Danielle Marr were paged, alongside their fellow volunteers, at Anstruther RNLI to assist a 28 foot vessel that had encountered mechanical failure off the coast of Crail.
Both Danielle and Louise have volunteered at the lifeboat station for a number of months now, fine-tuning the skills required in training exercises to prepare them for the eventuality of a shout coming in.
On arrival at the location of the vessel, Danielle and Louise put into practice the rope work they have worked on in previous weeks by securing a towing line to the casualty vessel under the supervision of the coxswain and senior crew before the short journey to the sanctuary of Anstruther harbour commenced.
