The volunteer on duty at Marine Rescue Central Coast had an uneventful three days until the base received a mobile phone call around ten to three on Easter Saturday. The call was from one of three young men aboard a 3.0m tinny at the north end of Woy Woy Channel. He said their 6HP engine had failed as asked for assistance to return to the wharf at Lintern Street.
Ian Radford and his crew on Central Coast 21 were tasked to assist. They quickly located the tinny and the three young men and towed them safely back to the requested location.
