Kent Online reports that two men were rescued as their fishing boat sank in Ramsgate harbour early today.
The Chananne R13 was taking in water and sinking as it approached the Old Marina just before 7.30am. It was returning from an overnight fishing trip.
The Ramsgate lifeboat crew was scrambled at 7.31am and was on the scene seven minutes later. As The Chananne R13 rounded the Northern Breakwater it was listing heavily to starboard and water was slopping over its gunwales.
The all-weather boat came alongside and plucked the crew to safety as she began to flounder, and she sank as they watched. The men were landed ashore at the boathouse by 7.43am.
