Sunday afternoon, a cold wind was blowing yet the phones were running hot. Reports of a runaway vessel on the Huon, LBT members were rallied remotely and a crew assembled by the roadside. Out on the river a yacht shot past under power, dinghy in tow. A pair of River dwellers whos habit of  constant surveillance of river traffic had spotted the runaway from the hills and had leapt into motion. In minutes the missing vessel was found held safely by a snag and shortly brought upriver to Franklin.
Now safely secured to the pontoons the vessel awaits the return of its Captain, and his offering no doubt of a salvage fee (beers I suspect). ( Thanks to Matt, JP and Two Dogs - and the LBT team on standby)
