Tyne-class out of service

The final Tyne-class lifeboat on station, RNLB Annie Blaker (ON1153) will be replaced at Wicklow on February 24th 2019 by a relief Shannon-class boat (pending Wicklow receiving its own Shannon). This brings to an end just over thirty five years of service by Tyne-class boats.

Some good engine noises on this clip from Workington and Portpatrick boats. Assisted by Kirkcudbright ILB in getting Accord afloat.
