Volunteer RNLI crew of Aberystwyth lifeboat paged to assist trawler grounded on rocks

As the RNLI crew made their way to the boathouse they were surprised to see a 100 tonne, 15m beam scalloping trawler rolling around on the rocks directly outside the lifeboat station. With bad weather due, the scalloper had decided to make its way into Aberystwyth harbour. Once past the breakwater at the harbour entrance the vessel’s engine died and was quickly pushed onto the rocks, known locally as the trap. Once the engines were restarted the boat was spun around further onto the rocks and the crew asked HM Coastguard for lifeboat assistance. >click to read< 09:04
