The FV Ana rescue – success!

Fortunately the tide didn’t wash away the causeway and the next day it was beefed up and a Landholdings crane took over. Slings were fixed around the boat and it was hoisted off the rocks, manoeuvred onto a cradle and lifted onto the back of a trailer.
The load was heavy and there was a short, steep incline leading onto the shore so a tractor joined the parade to add muscle.
This time everything worked well, FV Ana made it to land and the best free show in town was over.
