Dungeness RNLI lifeboat ‘Pride and Spirit’ assists motor vessel ‘Just Yum Yum’ that was taking in water.

At 13.52 hrs on Sunday 1 August, 2010 Dungeness RNLI lifeboat was called the motor vessel ’Just Yum Yum’ half a mile south of Dungeness Point with four persons on board. A stowed anchor had holed the hull of the vessel and it was taking in water whilst on passage from Ramsgate to Brighton and called the RNLI lifeboat to stand by.

Coxswain Stuart Adams said ‘we took two of the children off the stricken vessel and put two of our crew members aboard to monitor the water lever as we escorted the vessel to Dover Harbour. The casualty had been well prepared with safety equipment but you can never prepared for an incident like this to happen’
