We had an amazing day today. We watched a lifeboat display in the sea. And we even got a tour inside . It was an all weather lifeboat and it can carry 40 people. Just yesterday it rescued 2 people . There are 7 people working on board it. Its maximum speed is 25 knots! Its length is the size of two camper vans and has an extra little lifeboat!!!

Photos to follow, soon.
