Five Lithuanian men experienced at first hand the charitable activities of the RNLI this (Friday) evening, when Cowes lifeboat went to the aid of their crippled motorboat.
The 29-foot craft had lost engine power in the Solent, off Gurnard Luck. When the lifeboat arrived on the scene the crew implemented an alongside tow, to take the motorboat to Trinity Landing. There the grateful Lithuanians were met by onshore coastguards.
Having launched at 5 pm, the lifeboat returned to station at 6.15 pm.
