Arriving on scene the ILB passed a towline and towed the boat into Bembridge harbour. After checking over the engine and getting it running, the speed boat returned under its own power, (escorted by the Inshore Lifeboat as far as “Nomans Land Fort” in the middle of the Solent) made its own way back to Portsmouth.
