Oban Lifeboat rescues grounded fishing boat, attempts refloating the vessel

The vessel, with two people on board, was well aground and listing heavily when the lifeboat was called out at 7.45pm earlier this week. Two lifeboat crew used the craft to reach the fishing boat in shallow water. With the tide still dropping, the decision was made to return later in the evening to attempt to refloat the vessel. The boat was secured and the two fishermen put ashore. The volunteer crew of Oban lifeboat re-assembled at the station at 12.30am on Christmas Eve. >click to read< 17:14
