Coast Guard and others assisting broken down boats

Yeppoon Coast Guard crews are on their way to assist a broken down boat near The Pinnacles. 

Earlier, Coast Guard crews helped tow a boat which had been stranded on a beach at Great Keppel Island overnight. 

 In a separate incident, a private vessel helped tow another smaller boat back into the harbour after it broke down this morning.
