Solent Coastguards requested Lifeboat assistance to a 14’ dory broken down and drifting ‘Outside’ of Portland Harbour.
The ILB launched and located the vessel in Balaclava Bay.
The 2 occupants where otherwise unharmed, so a tow was connected to the casualty, and the vessel towed safely back to Castletown, Portland.
ILB was then released to return to station where it was refuelled and made ready for service.
