 Aquarius Bf 89  (Fishing Vessel)
6 hours ago by Timsen

Stromness RNLI boat spent the night towing the Aquarius
The Stromness lifeboat was paged at just before 10 p.m. on Feb 27, 2015, to help the "Aquarius", whose gearbox had failed to the northwest of Noup Head, Westray. There was a crew of six onboard the fishing vessel, and conditions were breezy with a high swell from the west. Getting regular updates on the position of the "Aquarius" from the Coastguard, the lifeboat arrived on the scene at 12.30 a.m. A long towrope was attached and the lifeboat began to tow the boat towards Orkney at 2 knots, the fastest safe speed given the 5-6 metre waves. The chafe on the towline was a problem and the tow had to be shortened several times. The crew requested the emergency tug "Herakles" to be sent by the Coastguard to tow the "Aquarius". She arrived at 4 a.m. on Feb 28 and attempted to pass a tow to the fishing boat, but it was decided to continue with the tow from the lifeboat until another fishing boat could take over. The fishing boat "Discovery" arrived at 7.45am and put a wire tow on-board the "Aquarius" and began the tow south to Scrabster, leaving the lifeboat and the Coastguard tug to return to port.

Attempt to salvage grounded tug failed
A tug ran aground at Lerøyosen in the Kors Fjord in the night from Feb 28 to Mar 1, 2015. The Norwegian Coastguard was notified about the incident shortly after midnight. The ambulance boat "Rygervakt" arrived first at the site. The "Njord" was asked to assist the 25-meter tug and was on Scene 15 minutes after later. With a pump the "Njord" made attempts to dewater the tug and undertook several attempts topull the vessel off jointly with the "Rygerbuen". But due to the combination of shallow waters around the tug, strong winds and heavy seas it capsized before it could be salvaged. At 02.30 the Crew of two was evacuated and taken aboard the "Njord" and taken to the Flesland quay.
