3 more best lifeboating things............

1. People are drawn to the lifeboats seemingly magnetically. Sometimes you connect with these people and strike up friendships. Even my children are capable of developing friendships based on a shared interest in all things Lifeboating.

2. Some of the kit we get provided with to use is simply the best in the world. For example, this atlantic 85 must be without doubt one of the most capable small power boats in world. I am mightily jealous of the lucky blighters who get one of these on their station.

3. Lifeboating is never as simple as pager goes off, get in a boat, rescue someone. For much of the time we are turning our hands to all manner of unexpected things. Here is the painting done by the crew during lifeboat week. A talented bunch hey?!

Hi John, that was a pleasant surprise to see Joshua appear in cyberspace :-) He was chuffed to bits when I showed him earlier.

The boys still talk about their visit and enjoyed meeting you and your family, as did Carolin and I.

Hope you are well, Mark.
