At 22h21 on Monday, 04th July, NSRI Kommetjie duty crew were activated following a request for assistance from two local men, located off-shore of Scarborough, reporting their rubber-duck to be taking on water.The Sea Rescue craft Spirit of the Vines was launched and on arrival on the scene, 1 nautical mile off-shore of Scarborough, the fishing trawler Ku-ula was found to have taken both men safely onboard and had taken the casualty rubber-duck under tow.The casualty rubber-duck was found to be lying low in the water and fears were that if the tow was stopped the casualty rubber-duck risked taking on more water. As a result Ku-ula continued to tow the casualty craft towards Hout Bay harbour.Our Sea Rescue craft escorted them to Hout Bay harbour where they assisted in getting the casualty rubber-duck safely moored at the Quay. Once safely moored no further assistance was required.The operation was completed by 02h15.
