Here’s a super photo of the new Hoylake RNLI lifeboat – named Edmund Hawthorn Micklewood.
The photo, by Dave James, captures the new lifeboat during crew training with the new Supacat launch and recovery rig in the Irish Sea at Hoylake.
The new boat arrived mid-morning on Monday having sailed up from RNLI HQ at Dorset and at times this week there’s been three lifeboats at the station. If you’ve not been down to have a look then you should …the new boat and launch rig are really impressive! It’s good to see that public donations can and do help RNLI invest in new lifeboats that are able to react quicker to emergencies at sea and offer greater safety for volunteer crews.
I’ll publish a full article and more photos about the new lifeboat very soon!
