Hot, Wet & Wild

If I wasn’t a Volunteer Firefighter in the US I’d be a member of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution in the UK.

Around the coast of the United Kingdom there are volunteer lifeboat stations (of course there are a number of the Isle of Man). Whenever there are emergencies at sea the lifeboats go out to do whatever is needed.

Most stations have the boat launch from the boathouse down a ramp into the water. (see videos after the jump)

It’s kinda like the fire service except not as hot and stuff.

The RNLI was founded by Sir William Hillary

Wha’d'ya think? Nuts?
