Both FRASER and DELTA Lifeboats conducted safety patrols over the long weekend from 20-23 May 2022. As this was the first long weekend of the boating season we expected it to be fairly busy.
Lots of commercial traffic was observed on 20 and 21 May, with kayakers and very few pleasure boaters out.
On 23 May the Delta Lifeboat responded to a PAN PAN call from a pleasure craft that ran out of fuel off buoy S6 in the Fraser River. It was determined a tow was required to the fuel dock in Steveston as commercial assistance was refused.
Overall, it was a fairly quiet long weekend and we were happy to render assistance where required.
