New lifeboat

As well as a new lifeboat station Arran has a new lifeboat. It arrived last week complete with new launching tractor and over the next two weeks the 17 RNLI crew members were to undergo intensive training on her.

However, as it turned out, the training inspector decided that after the first weekend that the Arran crew had mastered the boat and she was commissioned last Sunday. The boat itself is not Arran’s permanent boat, it will be here for two years before another of the same type, an Atlantic 21, is delivered.
