Three fishermen whose 10ft boat ran aground after hitting rocks sent a Mayday call when their vessel began to take on water.
The RNLI in Swansea Bay came to the rescue of three stranded fishermen on Sunday evening.
The group grounded the boat on the eastern breakwater of a marina in Swansea Bay, and the RNLI mobilised both its all-weather lifeboat and inshore lifeboat as well as alerting the shore-based coastguard rescue team.
A spokesman for the RNLI said: “There was damage to the hull and [the boat] was taking in water. The all-weather boat was pumping out water and the inshore lifeboat was ferrying equipment.”
The all-weather lifeboat crew eventually managed to pull the fishing boat off the rocks and tow it to the slipway at Knab Rock in Mumbles to dry out.
None of the fishing boat crew were injured and the rescue operation finished at 7:30 p.m.
