Sportsfisher rescued by RNLI

Rhyl’s All-weather RNLI lifeboat and volunteer crew assist a sportsfisher boat with a fouled anchor. As suggested in the November 2011 issue of MBM, the rescue team uses a grappling hook to snag the anchor line and successfully free the anchor. The vessel is then escorted back to its launch site.
