Mariandi Too – was safely towed back to Penarth by the lifeboat

After the search for a missing person off Penarth yesterday , Penarth’s Atlantic 85  lifeboat Maureen Lilian was called out again today  – this time to the aid of a disabled fishing boat which was drifting without power in the Bristol Channel.

A lifeboat crew-member was put aboard the 19 foot long casualty vessel Mariandi Too  to help organise before she was towed back  to Penarth.

Penarth lifeboat secured the casualty vessel alongside for maneuvering into the Cardiff Bay Lock.

Penarth Coastguard officers interviewed the two men aboard the boat – a Jeanneau Merry Fisher – when she was safely berthed at Penarth Marina.

The vessel’s crew are understood to be safe and well.

    What became of the days when other vessels would come to the aid of a broken down boat and tow it home.

    Our local lifeboats are in danger of becoming a breakdown service and ferry service.

    Another expensive call out for the volunteer crew.
