Re: Border Farce & RNLI "shuttle service"??? - Maritime Law
Being part of the RNLI I wish to say that if we refused to help and people were drowned, then the finger is pointed at us. We are in a no win situation either way. Every shout costs us £5000 in fuel,lost wages etc and people don't realise that. We are all volunteers with the aim to save lives but I for one think the law should be changed immediately to allow the lifeboat not to be a ferry service. We must also remember that should a serious incident occur while the offshore lifeboat is ferrying people then it could be very serious.
