Our temporary lifeboat station

When we moved out of the old boathouse we needed somewhere to keep our inshore lifeboat, boarding boat, their launch vehicles and all our PPE. For the duration of the build we'll be operating from our temporary lifeboat station in the boatpark.

Inside you'll find both boats and their launch vehicles ready to go behind the roller shutter door.
Inside the building there are two green 20' containers that are fitted out as drying rooms.
One for the ALB kit.
And one for the ILB and Shore helper's kit.
Both are heated and fitted with dehumidifiers to make sure the kit is kept dry and in good condition.

Outside in the boatpark we also have a workshop container and a store. There's also a portable fuel bowser and a shogun to tow it with. It takes a lot of equipment to keep a lifeboat station operating!
