    Default Mayday on Sun 16.11.08

    Ca 1200 there was a Mayday from an RIB 7M apparently 12nm South of Anvil Pt, snagged by the stern 3 persons aboard, by Crab/lobster pot gear. Swanage lifeboat eventually despatched to rescue them after a passing commercial vessel identified them and gave precise position. Wind apparently W5 or 6.

    Yes, we heard that. Couldn't see how it amounted to a Mayday, though.

    Bet you wouldn't say that if it was you that were stuck, and felt that you were in grave and imminent danger
