Some never seem to learn. How many people have found, to their horror, that the sun can make a real mess of your skin. I saw many when I was at sea being lined up for treatment, and blisters from sun burn. Every trip there would be a few.

I reckon the lifeboat got more sea miles than the ship! LNG Chalanger / Pollinger - never seemed to move anywhere - storage mainly I think?
