Launch The Lifeboat

On Sunday 23 January a number of Cadets and Otters paid a visit to Walton and Frinton Lifeboat and had the chance to have a look around.  Although the boat is nearly 18 years old it is still a very smart piece of kit and incredibly powerful.  There was a bit of a vote to see if it was worth throwing someone off the Pier so we could see just how quick the boat could reach them, but then we thought better of it!  Afterwards there was a film of just how the RNLI works and we were told that the Station is getting a brand new boat in the next couple of months costing £2.7 million – Wow. 

Here, can we have your old one?
