Skerries RNLI Liferaft-Colt-Island

 

Skerries RNLI launched at 10:10 am on 26/20/2012 to reports of a liferaft on Colt island,one of a small group of islands just off the coast. The lifeboat was on scene less than 3 minutes later. A crew member was put ashore to check whether there was anybody in the liferaft. It was quickly ascertained that it was a four man liferaft but there were no casualties. The crew recovered the liferaft and upon returning to the station reported the serial number and description of the liferaft to the coastguard, who then requested Skerries Coastguard to take posession of the raft.
