Busy day for Marine Rescue

Central Coast Marine Rescue had a busy day on December 30.

Their day started with a call to assistance to a vessel moored in Woy Woy Channel after its owner discovered it had taken on water overnight, due to possible vandalism.

Rescue vessels Central Coast 21 and 22 were tasked to assist and responded with a fire pump and a bilge pump each.

Both crews pulled up alongside the vessel and with all pumps going, lines set up and a lot of manpower, the boat was lifted above the water level.

On the way back from pumping out the boat, Central Coast 22 was tasked to tow a small runabout from Paddys Channel to Gosford ramp.

The runabout had two adults and two children on board.

While that tow job was occurring, Central Coast 21 was tasked to assist a jet skier whose vessel had broken down in Hardys Bay.

The crew rescued the operator and then towed his jet ski to Lions Park.

Not long after, Central Coast 21 was tasked with towing an eight-metre cruiser from Paddys Channel to Caroline Bay, while Central Coast 22 was then tasked to rendezvous with Marine Rescue Cottage Point 30 in Broken Bay and take over the tow of a yacht they had picked up.

The transfer went perfectly with Central Coast 22 soon having the yacht under tow and heading to Hardys Bay.
