ILB requested to launch to a report of a drifting tender seen by a member of the public in the Fleet.
Wyke IRT had been tasked, but the tender had grounded on Chesil Beach, with no easy access to be checked other 5than a very long walk.
ILB located the tender and checked for any signs of recent use.
With no evidence found, the tender was pulled up the beach, well clear of the water line.
ILB was then released to return th station, refuelled and made ready for service.
