A local fisherman in a 23 foot Seaward angling boat developed engine failure and was close to Coombe rocks. He radioed the lifeboat on Ch 16 just as it was about to be recovered. The lifeboat responded immediately and advised him to anchor as he was then only 100 foot from the rocks. The Coastguard was informed. The boat was towed back to her mooring at the Noss Marina.
