A yacht broke the bow line on the pole moorings during a southerly storm. It swung around and damaged the yacht behind it. The Harbour Master requested us to help secure the vessel and MR2 put it back on the pole with a new line. 

It was later discovered that the vessel planks had been damaged and it was taking on water. MR1 was required to bring it in for a liftout later in the day.
