This is the company developing it. What took the RNLI so long - still not a RIB though!!!

Talking of RIBs it seems they have designed some pretty intersting ones we all know about....

Tamar at Whitby

We went to muck about off Whitby on Sat and saw a Tamar there, didnt look like it was on service and their regular boat was tied up as normal.

How would you get the boat back in the water? Wait for high tide? Call a tug?

I know that its a casualty response thing, but, still...

Looks like they put in to Whitby and picked up some crew, they werent kitted out like a shout just life jackets and they went out north. Purposeful looking craft seems right.

The beaching process is only to recover the boat after a shout, if conditions are too bad to recover in the water. Recovery is by winch back onto the boat's launch trailer. As per:
