At the operations center in Punat, Vedran and Marin immediately got ready. It is a few steps from the office to the harbor where the emergency boat is located. While Marin eases the lines, Vedran is already starting the engines. The two got off with the routine—and only a few minutes later they were on the waterway to Krk at full speed.
