Fixing the light.
This is what Trinity House do. They keep the lights on. This was about 2004. NW goodwin buoy was reported unlit. The Coxswain is handling the ship's boat in readiness to embark the Officer from the buoy. Not strictly "life on board," but slightly detached.

Great shot! A suitable reminder of a service too much taken for granted.

Nearly went for interview for 2/0 with TH back in the 70's. Then before I went someone explained "buoy jumping" to me. I cancelled the appointment - sorry not for me!!!!!! Interesting photo though thanks.
