The trawler Progress LK378 sank while fishing for crab in bad weather off South Uist, Scotland. The Progress became disabled when a rope became entangled around the vessel’s propeller. The high winds and rough seas quickly swamped the vessel. The two crew on board sent out a distress call and abandoned ship with just lifejackets. The two men were in the water for 30 minutes when two fishing vessels arrived on scene. The Anita and Ocean Maid rescued one crewman each. Both men arrived safely and were unharmed.
