Shouts (Service Calls) 2015

Brief details: the 14 metre landing craft used by sub-contractors working at 
Hinkley suffered bow door failure en-route into Watchet and began taking on 
water. Minehead and Barry Dock were initially tasked to assist but after pumping
 out water and steadying the situation, they were unable to get the casualty 
vessel into Watchet. The decision was made to come into Burnham and our Atlantic
 was tasked to assist. The casualty vessel was escorted in and subsequently 
beached adjacent to the pontoons (where we typically launch) where she currently
 remains. Representatives of the main contractors Costain have asked me to pass on
 their thanks too for our help and support.
