A creel boat from Orkney was rescued by lifeboat volunteers at the weekend after experiencing engine failure.
The Kirkwall creel boat was working off the Head of Holland in Orkney when it lost engine power.
Kirkwall RNLI Lifeboat station deputy launching authority, Dougie Manson, received a distress call from the vessel shortly after noon.
Following a quick briefing, coxswain Ali Cameron, alongside four fellow volunteers, boarded the lifeboat before launching to the scene at 12.40pm.
The lifeboat pulled alongside the vessel at 12.55pm before swiftly establishing a tow line with the stricken vessel.
It was then towed back to Kirkwall Harbour where it was safely tied up by 2pm.
The rescue marks the seventh call-out for the Orkney-based lifeboat this year so far.
