Whilst searching for a vessel that had broken down with 4 pob and requested a tow home as a non-member we discovered another one that had broken down on "the  bridge" near Mana Island. We marked their location and told them we would be back for them once we had located the first vessel. 

We found the first vessel under tow by someone else coming back into the channel. After confirming that it was them and that they no longer required our assistance (a non-member tow that would have cost them money) we returned to the second vessel. 

We towed them back in (also a non-member tow) to Mana Crusing Club launching ramp.
