    Is that like 'a rising tide lifts all boats?'

    Wow!

    When she went sideways I was gritting my teeth there... the Cap'n was giving her hell but it kept hitting bottom and the waves swung her to the right. Nasty spot to be in, sideways to the rollers like that!

    Pretty ballsy going in reverse to the rollers like that, but he didn't have much choice. That stern really took a beating.

    Why were they launching there? What's the backstory?

    It's a training launch (I think) by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI).

    There are 237 RNLI lifeboat stations around the coasts of Great Britain, Ireland, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands.

    The RNLI is principally funded by legacies and donations with most lifeboat crew members being unpaid volunteers.
