Here's an unusual view! This is what you see if you are driving the tractor used to get a Shannon lifeboat safely out to sea - and to bring it home again.
The driver is a volunteer, like all our shore crew. Shore crew are a vital link in the life-saving chain: launching and recovering lifeboats in all weathers, day or night, and making sure everything is ready for the next shout.
These images from the driver's cab were taken by Paul Williams, who is both shore crew and boat crew at @rnlibarmouthlifeboat .

Please tell me that someone has played the Thunderbirds theme while launching a boat this way?😆
❤️and what better music lol
Love it. A view that I am likely to never see again, although I am a Governor.
Can you volunteer for shore crew only? I’m blind as a bat and get seasick in the bath, just wondered if shore crew are specific to shore?
Marvels of engineering!
I'm part of the new quay Wales lifeboat crew so if I was to switch to barmouth crew would I need to do my crew training all over again?
