Launched to assist 40 ft motor cruiser with 4 persons on board, including 2 children.

Vessel reported suffering over heating engines, making way for Fosdyke. Following Launch the ALB proceeded South to locate the casualty vessel in the vicinity of the western end of the Freemen Channel. Casualty was identified by Radar and AIS, found proceeding slowly under its own power although both engines were problematic.

1 crewman was put aboard the vessel and the lifeboat escorted the boat in to the river Welland as far as a mooring known and the Stone Quay where it was berthed overnight. Sutton Bridge Coastguard also in attendance.
