A volunteer crew from Marine Rescue Batemans Bay is heading out to rescue three people on board a vessel that has broken down 12nm offshore from the Moruya River.
The boat has been stranded by a mechanical failure. All passengers are safe and are displaying a V-sheet to signal they are in distress.
The crew on board rescue vessel Batemans 30 is David Murn, John Clements, Peter Poole and Ned Foley.
Communications support from Greg Irvine and Andrew Murn in the unit's radio room at the Hanging Rock base.
