Marine Rescue kept busy

Marine Rescue NSW Central Coast volunteers were kept busy during the weekend of January 7 and 8 attending a variety of incidents.

Duty Radio Operator, Mr Alan Mott, received a call at around 12pm on the Saturday from the skipper of a six-metre scarab at The Rip with four people on board.

The vessel reported mechanical problems and requested help to return to the launching ramp at Lions Park, Woy Woy.

Rescue vessel Central Coast CC021, under command of Mr Al Morris, was tasked to assist and soon had the vessel in tow to safety.

Mr Mott received another call for assistance just before 2pm when the owner of a six-metre runabout at Blackwall reported that his engine had been swamped by the wash of a passing large motor cruiser and sought help to return to his mooring in the Lintern Channel.

Mr Morris and his crew on rescue vessel Central Coast CC021 located the vessel and undertook the tow.

Duty Radio Operator, Ms Shea Wicks, received a call for assistance on the Sunday from the people on board a 4.86 metre runabout broken down off Tallow Beach.

Rescue vessel Central Coast CC022 under command of Mr Alan Howes responded by towing the runabout to Lions Park Woy Woy.

Ms Wicks received another call for help around 11:45am from a 4.2 metre runabout at Lobster Beach which was having a mechanical problem.

Mr Al Howes and his crew on Central Coast CC022 were sent to assist.

The vessel was towed to the ramp at Koolewong.

Mr Jim Cleverly took a call at around 3:30pm from one of four people on board a five-metre Haines Hunter near the entrance to Hardy's Bay.

The caller reported a mechanical problem and asked for help getting the boat to Empire Bay Marina.

Mr Morris and his crew aboard Central Coast CC021 were sent to assist and towed the vessel to safety.
