I see in the Arbroath herald for 25th April 2014 that Arbroath lifeboat station is to get a replacement lifeboat for the present lifeboat "inchcape " which is a Mersey class lifeboat and the station is to get a new SHANNON lifeboat . This new Shannon lifeboat is the first modern RNLI all weather lifeboat to be powered by water jets instead of propellers and making her faster and more manoeuvrable when reaching casualties .

Launch and recovery trials of the Shannon are set to take place at Arbroath later this year .


will the new lifeboat be able to be launched from the lifeboat shed into the water or will she be like many others around the UK who are stationed in the harbour and are called out from the harbour with no launch from a lifeboat shed . I remember as a young lad in Arbroath the Arbroath lifeboat shed was extended to allow the newer and larger lifeboats of the 1950s or maybe was it the 1960s access into the Lifeboat shed . I recall Arbroath lifeboat shed is one of a few now left in the UK that is able to be housed inside a lifeboat shed .
