Oh dear, and the only access for vehicles to Rathlin is by small island car ferry. Would have thought they could have used floatation bags and dragged the boat off the rocks though.

I saw the pics of it a few yards from the lifeboat-is that what you mean? Or is that still there as well?

the truth

Listen Guys,

Let the guys from the RNLI do their job, the boat is still on the rocks and hopefully will be recovered by a floating barge Friday 15th, Its a long story but trust me no one is to blame, ( I know I was at there ). These things happen and we all learn from them. Ok rib net members dig deep we need a new lifeboat for the North Antrim Coast, I will be happy to accept any donation. Remember you don`t Know when you might need the RNLI.

Donations please email for details to info@seatreks-ireland.com

Regards and thanks

who was suggesting anything else - or interfering in what they do? Not sure if that statement was intended the way it comes across to me. People are interested. Thats not surprising.

good - perhaps there are lessons we can all learn from this story - so feel free to begin telling the saga so that we too can all learn from them.

Sorry if the start of my thread came accross that way, it was not intended.
The guys/girls from the Rnli and local people have worked 24/7 for the last two weeks to recover as much from the boat as possible, she is a shell at present ( 13 Feb ), all parts recovered will go to other boats as spares . Hey Guys feel free to make a small donation.
Will post a few pictures in due course.
Regards and thanks

Thankfully no, but one of our boats was giving a hand.
