Farewell to Poole Lifeboat

Recommended Posts

Looking at the last picture I see that John C was coxing " his" boat on its "last" journey,   I bet that hurt,!!!  it made me gulp a bit.   Derek.  :(  :(

Yes I wondered why as I was the only other boat in the sea he decided to pass me 20 foot from my port beam, and I had to keep steering away from him.

There might be a direct impact on the club here.

 

Some members consider the RNLI a "get me home" service like the RAC or AA, but should remember it's there "to save lives at sea".

 

"Home" for the Swanage and Yarmouth lifeboats isn't in Poole.

 

Could I suggest members consider more "buddy boat" arrangements until the new regime settles down, particularly over the quieter winter months, and take efforts to check and uplift safety kit and arrangements.
