Two people had to be rescued by Barmouth RNLI this morning after their cabin cruiser swept up on Borthwen Beach.
The 21ft vessel had gone adrift from the pontoon in the harbour, ending up near the railway bridge.
RNLI crews said the boat was being lashed by waves in gale force conditions on the rocks when they arrived.
With help, the couple managed to scramble up the railway embankment to safety.
