2008 Incident #46 12.10.08 1633UTC

The IRT was tasked to assist the RNLI with the recovery of a 12′ Fletcher Arrow Speedboat and its occupants, which sank 50 metres off shore from Monmouth Beach.  The boat had gone to assist another member of their party who had stalled the engine and was sinking with a Kawasaki X2 jet ski.  The weight of the waterlogged jet ski under tow caused the boat to become flooded and capsize.  All four casualties were recovered safe and well.
