  • Marine Rescue Evans Head swings in action on Christmas Day
  • December 25, 2014

A crew from Marine Rescue Evans Head was quick to swing into action on Christmas Day when a local boater suffered an engine failure due to fuel problems south of Evans Head.

 

With a 17 knot wind from the North East and a slight swell of 1-1.5 metres, the vessel was stranded between Carhorse and South Evans Head Reef with two people on board, both of whom were wearing their lifejackets and had their other emergency equipment at the ready.

 

The MR Evans Head crew - skipper Tony McNally, Scott Mohr and Bruce Pedder - swiftlylaunched Evans 30 and were on the scene in just over half an hour, taking the vessel under tow and returning it safely to shore, while Deputy Unit Commander Kira Hartland maintained communications from the unit’s radio tower.


MRNSW reminds all boaters to always wear their lifejackets whenever they are on board and to Log On and Off with their nearest MRNSW unit when heading out.
