STATEMENT BY NSRI SHELLY BEACH STATION COMMANDER JEREMIAH JACKSON:

On Saturday, 21st April, at 14h00, NSRI Shelly Beach duty crew were activated following reports from NSRI Port Edward of a vessel taking water off-shore north of the Mpenjati Nature Reserve.

The NSRI Shelly Beach sea rescue craft Spirit of Dawn was launched and NSRI Port Edward dispatched a mobile rescue vehicle to assist with communications.

On arrival on the scene we found a 5.5 meter rigid inflatable rubber-duck (RIB) with crew onboard and the RIB had motor problems complicated by a pontoon separated from the hull.

A tow-line was rigged and we towed the boat without incident to Shelly Beach where the casualty craft was recovered without incident.
