I would have liked to see a photo of

"I'm Jim, I go to sea to save people from certain death in the face of storms that would make anyone's arse twitch"

Yep utter nails. I remember listening to the radio recording of the Pendeen lifeboat when they had rescued half the crew and were going back for more. The skipper was so calm he sounded like he was ordering a pint in his local. The entire crew and the rescued passengers all died. For those in peril on the sea. Very brave men and women all of them.

I agree with your sentiments but I think you will find it was the Penlee lifeboat. Pendeen is on the North Cornish coast.

He's going to kill me for rifling through his FB photos.

I don't think I can look at anymore of them, especially after seeing this:
