Particulars

A fishing boat with 2 POB reported a leak and that they were sinking. Then there was no connection with the boat. Another boat took off immediately to the supposed emergency position. A rescue helicopter was also made ready. But a little later the connection was re-established with the boat, which had now gained control of the leak and had set the course for the nearest port.
