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.
