Monday 12th April

I am going out of Poole for a few hours on Monday evening, departing at around about 1800.

Doing a bit of crew familiarisation/training with some friends aboard. If anyone is out & about and fancies a run down the Jurassic coast your welcome along.

Steve

Had a good couple of runs out today. The morning run was uneventful and had Bogi along for the ride. I think he enjoyed seeing the Jurassic coast.

The evening trip was also going to plan, until my son said he thought he saw a deer. Nothing strange, but as we were at the base of a 45m cliff on a very exposed coast, it did seem odd. But sure enough, just staying clear of the breaking waves, was a deer.

There was no chance of it being able to get out or up, we called the coastguard, who did seem a little taken aback. They informed the coastguard shore cover.

On the way back we stopped to see if it was still there (it was) and was able to guide the guys on the top to the location. Shortly after, the Swanage RNLI sib arrived and with a bit of swimming by both deer and RNLI staff, the deer was recovered. Deer swim very well, even after a big fall!

David (Avocet) did take some pictures and will post at some point I hope.

Steve

If Steve's Rib Rides are all as unusual as tonight's, he'll be very successful indeed!

I remain uncertain what part of the RNLI training teaches them how to tackle and recover into a boat a frightened deer prepared to jump into breaking water and swim along the base of an overhaning cliff! Well done to the lads (or at least the one that had the special training) for achieving it!

Here then are (with apologies for the quality owing to low light, distance and a moving platform from which to take them) a couple of photos of the rescued deer being held in the SIB.

Thanks again, Steve, for the ride which (even deer incident apart) was an excellent taster of what I am sure will be a great RIB experience for many people.

Indeed I loved the Jurassic trip, and people will be getting awsome trip for little money and surely be able to take awful lot of pictures, I have not checked how many pictures I took but they must be at least couple of hundreds.

Steve thanks for the invitation.

Well done to all .

Steve- being a little devious have you considered telling the local newspaper ? The mention of the company name & what you do , combined with good PR for the RNLI cant hurt ? Plus a few pics.

I seem to recall Mudeford lifeboat picked up a deer a fre years ago and made it to the local TV/ papers etc.

I'd much rather read about this than the election ..........

Pete
