26-11-08 Harbour Drama
[Enterprise II at Kinlochbervie]There was drama in the harbour on Wednesday night as the fishing boat Enterprise II started taking on water amidst foul weather.

The Coastguard helicopter from Stornoway lifted three of the crew to safety whilst two remained on board as the boat was towed towards Kinlochbervie by the fishing boat Genesis.

Despite strong winds the helicopter stayed with the boats and assisted with crew and equipment transfer until the Enterprise II was safely tied up alonside the quay in Kinlochbervie.

Following safety checks next day Enterprise II was again towed out by Genesis for repairs at the MacDuff Shipyards.

We look forward to seeing her return once again when repairs are complete.
