Was out tonight but will watch on I player - I support the RNLI and get fed up with those who say it is a rich charity etc.

Having had an opportunity to spend time onboard with a crew several years ago (via work and not in distress) I have nothing but the utmost respect!

The crew that capsized at Blackpool Absolutely terrifying.

Just watched it over lunch. Excellent programme. Coincided with my Gov renewal letter arriving this morning... happy to add another year to my 30+ year membership.

I was not expecting the Blackpool flipover and that does make you think... in my case reinforcing why it's so important to do everything possible to avoid putting the family into that type of position.
