A 32 foot yacht was immobilised when the line from a crabber's dan buoy became entangled round their prop. The lifeboat crew managed to free the line and remained with the yacht until it was established that the 2 on board were safe and had full use of their engine.
On their way back to Dartmouth the crew were hailed by a second craft requiring assistance.
