Lets hope we never have to rely on it. 1.5 million each and 50 of them planned.

From what i've been told all those men are volunteers,so they deserve the best gear they can get.

There are only a couple of Lifeboat stations as I understand it, with full times crews. One I know is the Humber lifeboat. Very dangerous waters, very busy craft.

The RNLI always have a stall at the Sheldon Country fair, they sell their memorabelia and bring an RNLI inflatable on a trailer.
