have their uses. We have one which we occasionally depend upon aboard the Mersey. However, they can be a bit of a liability on the beach where they often get blown out to sea. Surprisingly we seldom get shouts to recover these things as there are generally plenty of folk passing by who can recover the thing before we are called.

Yesterday was an exception. Just as we were assembling for the carnival procession our pagers went off and the ILB was launched to recover two young people in an inflatable near te pier. Easy job, quickly done. Well done Gave, Kev and Deasy.

Has the ILB shrunk? Or is that a pic of the inflatable you keep aboard the Mersey?
