RNLIB “Rose” made a courtesy call to Coverack bay on the 16th July, and here are some pictures of here visit.
The crew had spent a week in Poole familiarising themselves with the new boat and its new systems.
The Tamar class lifeboat is fitted with up to date navigation, radio and search equipment.
A big thanks is due to all those who dontated so generously in order to make the new lifeboat possible.
