Crippled Motor-Cruiser Gets a Tow from Cowes Lifeboat

A 40 foot motor-cruiser which sought help through Solent Coastguards today after reporting engine failure, was eventually towed into Cowes by the local RNLI lifeboat.

The motor-cruiser, Mi Gemm, with four persons aboard, was in Thorness Bay when problem was reported. The lifeboat, with Patrick Moreton at the helm, was launched at 1.12 pm and was soon on the scene.
