Our Mersey leaves Swanage for the final time at 2pm today
At 2pm today retiring Coxswain Martin Steeden, Assistant Mechanic Colin Marks and a selection of long serving crew members will take our Mersey class all weather lifeboat ‘Robert Charles Brown’ out of Swanage Bay for the final time and return her to RNLI Headquarters in Poole. That marks the end of her time here in Swanage.
Since arriving in Swanage in May 1992 she has saved countless lives and helped hundreds and hundreds of people. We’ll publish her full stats soon.
