Batemans Bay Marine Rescue crews were kept busy on the water during the Easter long weekend.
A crew of three assisted a broken down runabout, about five metres upstream of the Batemans Bay bridge just after 5pm on Friday, April 14.
The vessel was towed to a nearby boat ramp by Michael Syrek, Greg Lee and Warren Lewis by 7.30pm.
On the morning of Saturday, April 15, volunteers were called to assist a broken down 5.7m half-cab vessel on the Clyde River.
A crew of Murray McCracken, Greg Lee and David Murn responded and returned the boat to Hanging Rock boat ramp by 11.30am.
During a day of training, crews were called to a water scooter bogged down on a sand bar in low tide.
The rider was assisted back to the shore and a crew of Murray McCracken, Greg Lee, David Murn and Phillip Booth floated the vessel in rising tide and towed it to Hanging Rock just before 8pm.
On Sunday, April, 16, crews responded to a fishing trawler while heading out for training in the open waters of Batemans Bay.
Volunteers started the trawler’s engine, but were required again later in the day to tow the vessel to Batemans Bay Marina.
The day also marked the end of a busy weekend of training for crews, which included safety drills, radar exercises, anchoring, general maneuvering and engineering.
