The National Sea Rescue Institute in
Durban and volunteer
sea rescue duty crew were activated following a request for assistance from the
15 foot ski-boat BINGO reporting to have engine mechanical failure and taking
water 10 nautical miles off-shore of uShaka.
NSRI Spokesperson Craig Lambinon
said the duty crew responded to the Durban Sea Rescue base when it was reported
that the crew of BINGO had restored motor power to one of her two motors and
were under way again on one motor and bailing water successfully.
Lambinon said the crew of BINGO, 4
males all from KwaZulu-Natal were
out of danger.
He added that it appears that in the
choppy sea conditions BINGO had been swamped by water when they had experienced
motor mechanical failure forcing them to raise the alarm while making
an effort to repair their motors.
