Behind the scenes: In the engine room
What happens when an RNLI lifeboat has engine trouble? And who fixes it? Find out with this behind-the-scenes video.
Engines can go wrong – that’s why it’s important to give our lifesavers the training they need to get their lifeboat running again, to get themselves – and those they rescue – home safely. You may have even seen the crew at Rhyl repairing their lifeboat on their way to a casualty on a recent episode of Saving Lives at Sea!
Ready for anything
Our crews are ready to respond in any weather, at any time of the day or night – even when it’s pitch black. Find out how they navigate to a rescue in the dark.Watch: Nav in the dark
