Spring tides

There are big spring tides this week which can be a mixed blessing. Unsure as we are about the RCB's ability to keep her momentum over the toe of the slipway we will probably launch from inside if called out at low water. This is always fun as we then have a race to get the aerials up as we are sliding down the slip. A point of pride if you like!Others take advantage of the tides in other ways. Geoff Marsh, ex-lifeboatman, crab boat skipper and plumber takes the chance to give Three Wishes a scrub and inspection below the water line.On completion he's filthy so Pete from the angling club literally hoses him down.Somehow Geoff didn't look too amused?
