Launch both boats


At 8.36pm Portland Coastguard paged our DLA Russ requesting that he launch both boats to assist in a search in Durlston bay looking for a lady who had been acting in a confused and strange way. 8 minutes later the ALB launched. Sadly nothing was found with the exception of some blood below the cliffs on the shoreline. Nothing more is known of the woman at this point. I will bring you the full story in the morning once I have had some sleep.

Impressive - how does everyone get there, get kitted up and launch in 8 minutes?

Quick isn't it!

It takes me about 1 1/2 minutes in the car from home. Then a quick dressing up race, onto the boat, start the engines, check everyone is aboard, knock out, aerials up as we go down the slip........
