More new winch wire

Dave has been busy once more. He's just sent us all an e-mail to let us know that the ILB winch has just been fitted with a dynex rope the similar (but not purple & a lot smaller) to the ALB one. It is a lot more costly than the old steel ones but hopefully will last a long time as it won't corrode when it gets wet. Also it won't kink and should be a lot nicer to handle. It is also slightly longer which should help with low water recovery.

Sorry, I know this isn't the best place to write this. I've just seen an episode of the Inbetweeners (Channel 4 comedy) in Swanage, which culminates in various characters being rescued by an ILB.

I was just wondering, were those geniune Swanage RNLI men who got their 15s of fame?
