While doing training exercises in Mana Marina we were approached by a man saying he'd broken down just around the corner and needed a tow home. He and his wife had beached his 4.4m runabout in the channel after drifting ashore and walked back to Mana marina to look for assistance. His main engine had come to a stop for an unknown reason and then he was unable to start his auxilary engine either.

Successfully towed back to Mana Marina to put on trailer.
