No the wavedancer sank as the Lifeboat tried to tow her clear, both crewmen were rescued by the Lifeboat inflatable, the boat was raised and towed into wick shortly after that

Yes, very lucky. The lifeboat was the RNLB "Norman Salveson" 47-016,
I think it was the day after they managed to refloat her and tow her to wick.
hope this helps.
