Heroes in Waterproofs!

Heroes in Waterproofs!
Volunteer crew of the RNLI Inshore Lifeboat the Atlantic 85 B-856 'Spirit of Fred Olsen' set off from the Kyle of Lochalsh.
The lifeboat has been launched on eight separate occasions in the past month.

Money for this lifeboat was raised by the Fred Olsen Cruise line, the name being chosen in a competition run by the cruise.

The lifeboat is capable of speeds in excess of 35 knots and because of her two inversion proof engines and manually operated righting system she is able to remain operational even after capsize. She has been equipped with radar, chart plotter and VHF radio direction finding equpment.

Information taken from the RNLI Kyle Lifeboat website

These guys are heroes in my book.

I have added 'Hero' by Mariah Carey as a link

Thank you very much Edna. Yes I can see it - and at the end the hero speeds off into the sunset on his lifeboat!!!!! Well you have to keep up with the times! Of course his heroine may have to be wet and bedraggled where he has saved her from the sea!!! You see - we are good at this - we just need to pad out the middle and we have our action movie!! Not quite James Bond but we are trying!!

Happy Fence Film Friday!! Have a good weekend

You are so right. And I'd prefer such an action movie. I'd even like to participate in it. My favorite part would be that of the heroine and who cares if she's bedraggled... :-)))))))
And who, BTW, is James Bond??! ;-)))

Oh you fame chaser!;-))). James Bond - I don't even James Bond knew who he was by the number of reincarnations he had!! Maybe memories - like martini coktails - should be shaken and not stirred!!
