Quite so Peter.
I do not know the Dover crew in person, but I do know about some of their more arduous shouts and I too feel nothing but respect for them and there colleagues.
Given that all Lifeboatmen have a sharp sense of humour, IME, I doubt that they need defending. If I thought they did I would have kept the photos to myself and the Deal crew, ok maybe the Ramsgate crew too. Oh aye and there is the photo on the other forum.
Anyway, to bring the thread back on track - here is a photo of a happy moment just before the big 'boat got a bit wedged.
