New Lifeboat for Exmouth arrives

9th May 2014

Exmouth RNLI’s new Shannon class lifeboat arrived in style today. The state of the art vessel was met out at sea by a flotilla of boats which included the two on station Exmouth lifeboats: the Mersey class Margaret Jean and the D class ILB George Bearman, the Atlantic class Teignmouth lifeboat: The Two Annes and a number of local craft. Coxswain Steve Hockings-Thompson brought the new Shannon along the Exmouth shoreline to the Marina entrance before returning back to the boathouse at Maer and demonstrating some of the new lifeboat’s capabilities including its spectacular launch and recovery procedures.
