The trawler Tavener went aground twice on a single day. The Tavener first went aground off the entrance to the Colne River, England. The vessel was able to refloat itself when the tide changed. The Tavener went aground later that day off the entrance of the Blackwater River near Tollesbury, England. The vessel was contacted by the RNLI lifeboat from West Mersea who found the two crew on the Tavener were safe. The Walton RNLI lifeboat was requested the next day to assist in refloating the trawler, but it was decided to wait a few days for favorable tides.
