Dungeness RNLI lifeboat assists 30' fishing vessel with fuel filter problems

On Sunday 11 April, 2010 at 19.02 hours, the RNLI lifeboat was called by a 30' fishing vessel, Sarah Louisa, with three persons onboard experiencing fuel filter problems, eight miles southeast of Dungeness Point in 25 mph northeast winds.

Roger Gillett, RNLI Coxswain on duty said " The casualty was sensible in calling us early when they knew they had a problem, this enabled us to be on scene to assist with a tow while they sorted out their fuel system, the casualty eventually managed to enter Folkestone Harbour safely under it's own steam"
