 Atlantic  (Fishing Vessel)
238 days ago by Timsen

Medevac off Whitehaven
On July 6, 2014, at 12:07 a.m. the St Bees RNLI relief lifeboat "Eric C Guest" was launched on service having been paged by the Liverpool Coastguard. They were requested to go to the assistance of the "Atlantic". A 52-year-old crew member had been reported to have stomach pains and was drifting in and out of consciousness. There was insufficient water for the survey vessel to enter Whitehaven Harbour, so it was decided that they should head for the more sheltered waters of Saltom Bay where the volunteer crew of St. Bees RNLI transferred the casualty to the lifeboat. The St. Bees lifeboat was then able to take the casualty to Whitehaven Harbour where an ambulance was waiting. The lifeboat was returned to station and made ready for service at 3:30 a.m.

 Loch Riddon  (Passenger Ship)
238 days ago by Timsen

Passengers stuck on board after problem with the ram
On July 6, 2014, the "Loch Riddon" was disabled just after she left the port of Largs for the 10-minute trip to Cumbrae after a problem with the hydraulic ramp. It was decided to return to the port in an attempt to repair the problem. 57 people and six cars were on board the 11.45 a.m. sailing. The "Loch Riddon" tied up at the port but it was decided passengers could not disembark safely so they were kept on board and were given hot drinks and water. A temporary fix was carried out and all the passengers and cars were eventually allowed off the vessel at 1.30 p.m. after a temporary fix was done. The ferry went back into service at 4 p.m.
