A spokesperson at RNLI said: "The crew at Eyemouth were offshore doing an exercise today, but at no point were they off service. In the event there are tidal restrictions, which happens around 12 times a year, it would only be for 55 minutes at a time".
St Abbs RNLI Lifeboat volunteers are to protest later today against a planned closure of their station.
An RNLI Lifeboat has been confined to the harbour for 2 and a half hours today, according to the RNLI service at St Abbs.
On their Facebook page, the St Abbs RNLI Lifeboat Station wrote: "Between the hours of 10am until 12.30pm today Eyemouth's Trent Class All-weather Lifeboat is confined to harbour, due to tidal restrictions....basically,there is not enough water in the harbour entrance for the boat to put to sea."
Volunteers in St Abbs are protesting later today against a planned closure of their station later this year.
The RNLI are planning to close the station following a review, and providing coverage to the 35 mile stretch of coastline with a new D class lifeboat from Eyemouth.
