Whale Rescue - Solent

Spent a very enjoyable day with the British Divers Marine Life Rescue, training to be a Marine Mammal Medic to help cover the Hampshire and Dorset coast.
I would highly recommend this course where ever you are in the UK and no, you dont have to be a Diver! A great excuse to dress in rubber and play with KY Jelly ......

In the Hampshire & Dorset area, they do not have access to a dedicated RIB/boat. I was wondering if ther might be some merit, in putting together a private data base of RIB owners who might be prepared to help, if it a RIB was required in a particular area of this coastline for a rescue.

Regards
Steve

Giving mouth to mouth to a whale ..LOL

Your idea sounds interesting, would probably need a number of people to add to the database to get proper cover. Will you be working on this idea.

I know I was in a wetsuit in the sea yesterday , but I thought this thread was a bit harsh about me .........

Is it mouth to blowhole ?

Reckon the list of possible boats to use is a good idea Steve - I am sure mine and my/Ricks can go on a list ( I'm sure Rick wont mind being another BDMLR). Not so good offshore, but good for shallow water.
