According to the Wrecksite (http://www.wrecksite.eu/wreck.aspx?70571), she foundered off Lowestoft on 26jan90, but was subsequently raised.

A comment on http://www.rnli.org.uk/rnli_near_you/east/stations/lowestoftsuffolk/history reads: "1990 A Bronze Medal was awarded to Shane Coleman who, as the coxswain and sole crew member of the Lowestoft pilot boat, rescued the three crew from the sinking tug Impulsion."
