Seaside Rescue

Seen tonights episode and there was this guy getting a lift from IJ, he was apparently stuck in a Marsh in the New Forest. When they lifted him he didn't have a drop of mud on his Boots. Was this an exercise? Was this faked by the film crew? He certainly didn't look to be in trouble.

We watched this and thought the same. He looked like he could easily have walked out....

I think they are struggling for some good footage. I'm not decrying the RNLI and the other rescue services but maybe a lot doesn't exactly happen on the South Coast. Perranporth is starting to get a bit boring now as well. Also I haven't seen one of the skippers of the Weymouth all weather boat, I think his name is Andy sergeant, for a little while. He was quite good at giving a rollicking to sailors like me who couldn't tie a knot or weren't too clued up. I think the camera crews should be looking to move location once in a while.
