KW2 Astrid Disabled
The 10 meter long trawler KW-2 Astrid became disabled off Scheveningen, Netherlands after a pipe in the cooling system broke. The broken pipe allowed seawater to flow into the engine room. The crew contacted the KNRM who dispatched the lifeboat to the scene. The lifeboat took the Astrid under tow back to Scheveningen. None of the 2 crew on the Astrid were injured.
