Penarth lifeboat tows the cabin cruiser Blue Marlin II past Penarth Pier

Penarth’s big Atlantic 85 lifeboat was called out last night to go to the aid of a disabled motor vessel adrift in the Bristol Channel.

One  of Penarth lifeboat’s crew members  boarded the disabled boat – “Blue Marlin II” –  before she was  towed back to Penarth and then secured alongside the lifeboat for  manouevering into the Cardiff Barrage locks.
