HM Coastguard paged LNR at 20:26hrs and requested the launch of the lifeboats to the aid of 2 persons on-board a speedboat with engine difficulties located outside Kinnego marina. With the vessel drifting towards rocks both the Ardboe and Kinnego lifeboats were requested to launch.

Both lifeboats launched swiftly and the Kinnego lifeboat proceeded to the casualty vessel. Upon arrival on scene the vessel had regained power and was making its way back into the marina alongside the Kinnego Harbor Master boat. Kinnego lifeboat also escorted the vessel back into the marina.

All units returned to base and made ready for the next tasking.
