Speedboat beached near the Ness

HM Coastguard tasked the Teignmouth lifeboat 'The Two Annes' to assist a speedboat reported as going aground on the rocks below the Ness. On the lifeboats arrival the speedboat had been beached in the Pool below the Ness Public House. A crew member went shore to check on the boats occupants, who were all OK but shaken. It was agreed with the local Coastguard team to leave the casualty boat where it was, as attempting a tow of the swamped boat would have been very difficult and unsafe.

Out-of-Control motor boat in the Harbour

A senior gentleman fell out of his small motor boat whilst leaning over the side to recover his mooring near Polly Steps - unfortunately the gentleman had unclipped the 'kill-cord' from himself and somehow managed to push the throttle lever to full power. The result was that the boat went into a spin on the water at full speed, and threw him into the water - fortunately the boat did not spin over him, but drifted down stream towards the dock area whilst still completing small circles.

The lifeboat with Giles Squirrel, James Cassidy and Adam Truhol on board, and with the assistance of the Teignmouth Tug managed to corral the runaway boat - the lifeboat crew managing to get a line aboard the spinning boat and getting close enough to it to be able to reach the throttle lever and reduce its speed.

The boat owner managed meanwhile to get ashore, and was taken by ambulance to hospital.
