A 23-FOOT gaffer, with a lone yachtswoman on board, had to be towed into Cowes today (Wednesday) after a mooring rope became wrapped around the propeller.
The woman, on passage from Cowes to Gosport, called Solent Coastguards for help as the boat, a ketch-rigged Yarmouth 23, was drifting close to Norris Buoy.
The tow began at around 10.40am, with lifeboat crewman Graham Creagh joining the woman on the old gaffer, and ended at Shepards Wharf marina at about 11.10am
