Photos of the St Ives lifeboat being scrambled during last night's lightening storm have been published.
Crews got the call to reports of a stricken boat in the bay at around five to nine, but nothing was found.
A spokesman said: " The inshore lifeboat Colin Bramley Parker was launched into a harbour which looked more like a boiling cauldron than a sea, with Jonathan Harvey at the helm & crewed by Murray Walker and new crewman David Holland-Kemp on his first inshore lifeboat shout.
"They searched near Carbis Bay to investigate the situation, and reported that a boat was anchored in the bay, but there was no one on board & it was not in need of assistance. The volunteer inshore lifeboat crew were then tasked to search the Porthmeor area as there were reports of a similar vessel in that area, but again nothing was found. The all weather lifeboat crew stood by with the boat on the slipway in case they were needed, but in the event were not called upon."
