Ice cream boats - soggy ?

BBC News - Three rescued from capsized ice cream boat off Hengistbury Head

I think the coding ( or lack of) on these boats may have been discussed before at some point ?

Good work again by my local ILB crew . I wonder if they all got a flake for good service ?

Maybe the callsign needs to be 'Rescue 99' for the ILB ?

They called the Helo out, he got waved off as he arrived on scene. Bet he was pi**ed not getting at least a Choc Ice for his trouble.

Maybe it capsized because there were too many people - was it Chokablok?

Maybe they were temporarily dazzled by a reflection and the Sun Maid it happen?

To get their so quickly the RNLI must have Zoomed to the scene - a good job as their is nothing so scary as seeing a Mango overboard.

(I'd better not say any more - Walls have ears you know).

The least said about the Nobblie Bobblie the better.

Interesting! We came very close to buying this boat and operating it in Chi Harbour!

Very chilling, i heard as soon as lifeboat launched ... Zoom zoom they were on the scene, hope mr softy and mr whippy are ok. It melted my heart to hear they are ok. Lol.

I saw an ice creame boat in studland bay the other day, what a great job, they were tied up to a yacht taking a break, theyneven went for a swim. Cant see they make much money as they were still taking a break an hour later.

I expect the operation has been frozen until the incident is investigated
