Another tractor, a boat, a trailer and a fuel bowser

Its been a busy week at Swanage Lifeboat Station. More new launch and recovery equipment has arrived and so has the boarding boat that we'll use to get to the ALB when its on the mooring.
Eight of our volunteers have started their training so that they can drive the new tractors. This will continue until RNLI assessors return in a few weeks to assess them as competent.
The final piece of kit is a portable fuel tank that we'll use to refuel the ALB. This could be in the boatpark or from the pier if the tide is too low.
