21-Foot Wellcraft Towed By Good Samaritan

January 26, 2015

A 21-foot Wellcraft that was unable to restart its engine, leaving it disabled in Great Sound, was recently rescued by a passing good Samaritan, who assisted the vessel in returning to its moorings at Jews Bay.

The Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre said, “Bermuda Radio received a cellular call from four persons on board a 21-foot Wellcraft advising that they were disabled in Great Sound in the vicinity of Morgan’s Point, unable to restart the engine, and requested assistance.

“While in communication with the vessel, a passing good Samaritan stopped and offered to help the disabled vessel, subsequently towing the powercraft safely back to its moorings at Jews Bay.”

    It would be good if these amateur sailors knew how to fix engines, or better still, didn’t depart with a faulty one.

      We’ll all remember when you need a tow…. Engines break down without notice.. even the best mechanic can’t repair his own engine without the right tools and parts

      Thanks to the friendly boater that lent a hand!!!!

    It is surely time for such amateurs to be banned from the seas? They are a danger to themselves and other sailors…

    Actually mr t lion, their engine blew up, so enough of your pompousness…

    T Lion is right – as my father always said “The sea is perfectly safe until you forget it’s extremely dangerous”. Amateurs should be accompanied.
