The 26 foot yacht, Chuckles, with two people on board, had lost engine power close to the Hurker rocks and required a tow to safety.

Eyemouth lifeboat was quickly on scene and passed a two line to the Chuckles, then towed it back to Eyemouth harbour where it was placed safely alongside 25 minutes after the initial launch.
