Farewell to Margaret Jean!

24th May 2014

 

"At 9am tomorrow, we shall be saying farewell to our Mersey class lifeboat, Margaret Jean. After six years dependable service, she is returning to the relief fleet at Poole.

After a recent healthy survey and good inspection, she is deemed fit to continue for her last couple of years service as a relief all-weather lifeboat.

The plan is to launch our new operational Shannon class lifeboat, R and J Welburn simultaneously, (depending on crew availability) to lead her out into Lyme Bay at 9am."
