Four men have been rescued after their boat caught fire in Luce Bay on the Galloway coast.
The incident happened in the early hours of Sunday morning, when a member of the public alerted the coastguard after spotting flames.
A search and rescue helicopter from Prestwick, as well as coastguard teams from the Isle of Whithorn and Stranraer were called out along with firefighters and ambulance crew.
All four men, in their late twenties and early thirties, were taken to Galloway Community Hospital, suffering from hypothermia.
Three of the men were from Dumfries, Patna and Helensburgh.
None of the men were wearing lifejackets and the station manager has issued a warning about water safety.
“They men hadn’t a lifejacket between them. One of them had a helmet with a light on it which was what drew the lifeboat to them.
“It was pretty silly not to have lifejackets with them or some other kind of aids.
"Three of them were in their normal clothes and the fourth had a wet suit, so they were really lucky.”
“Two of them had pretty bad hypothermia and all four were taken to hospital to be checked up but were later allowed home."

Stranraer dominated the first leg of their Championship playoff final, but had to settle for a 1 - 1 draw after Ayr equalised in the 94th minute.
Blues Manager Brian Reid says he regrets his team's missed chances, but that the tie is still very much open.
We could have had a comfier lead. We had a couple of great chances to make it two or three but it wasn't to be and to lose a goal in the manner we did is obviously disappointing.
But nothing is won or lost tonight anyway. Even if we'd have gone up there with a one goal head start it was still going to be a difficult game so, it has now just become a one off cup final, and one that we are looking forward to.
