Lifeboat comes to aid of trawler

SAGITTARIUS, a large trawler without a useable propeller, was given assistance by Girvan Lifeboat.

The trawler was being towed from Campbeltown to Noble’s yard in Girvan for repair by fishing boat ‘Rhubon Dhu’ when the weather worsened considerably with strong winds as they neared the Girvan harbour.
