No a great situation for anyone to be in. And not when it was hoax. Rnli crew used to have 2 double ended flares in the life jacket. Most will now have 1 flare and a PLB in every life jacket.

Was it? The news reported that the missing person was safely found ashore. That is not the same as a hoax - which is a malicious call out.

I'm a lazy git. 200m swim in full kit seems like hard work to me. And depending where you are and the wind/waves etc, getting out isn't going to be trivial.

The report I first read said it was, but you are right most others say during search with good intent

Even without a mayday, no comms to CG would have raised the alarm, and of course with other assets searching on land and sea you'd need to be pretty unlucky for a fire on a boat to go unnoticed!

fairly sure they have a hand held too on a D class - often a swimmer goes ashore.
I suggest you refresh your memory: http://www.rib.net/forum/misc.php?do...ork&page=rules
RNLI D class lifeboat

The D class lifeboat has a single 50hp outboard engine and can be righted manually by the crew after a capsize.
First introduced into the fleet in 1963, the design of the D class has continued to evolve since its introduction and the latest version (also known as the IB1-type) was introduced in 2003.
Equipment includes both fitted and hand-held VHF radio, night-vision equipment, and first aid kit including oxygen.
