SUPPORT YOUR RNLI AND SAVE LIVES
Formed in 1824, thr RNLI save lives - simple as that, they provide a charity based lifesaving service throughout the uk and republic of ireland, mostly supported by volunteers, they have 233 lifeboat stations and over 300 lifeboats. THEY operate on the basis of train one - save many and provide educational services ontop of the resuce team. they will be there for you come hell or high water, no matter what the weather, no matter what time of day or night. they put themselves at risk to respond for you. the RNLI is the differance between life or death for the uk sea going public.
ALL THIS COST'S MONEY
Did you know the single most shout the rnli respond to is due to machine failure. and over 52% all calls are for leisure craft users. meaning you and me. this costs money. so when you save yourself £100 or so missing that outboard service it costs the RNLI to respond to you, and they will no matter what remember.
The direct costs of launching a lifeboat are relatively small (service payments and fuel) but if all the other costs of a lifeboat are taken into account; stores, station and lifeboat maintenance; the average cost of launching an all weather lifeboat is estimated at £5,580 and £2,200 for an inshore lifeboat. Other costs include the depreciation of the lifeboat
So when you save £100 the rnli lose upto £6000 - money that could be put towards equipment or education. think about this when you go out without an aux outboard or dont service your equipment.
We can all do our part. HAVE A PLAN. make arrangements and tell someone when you will be home. its not rocket science. check the weather (AND THE FOG). check your equipment, have a way to make the call that saves your life and know how to do so. when you channel 16 yourself think about it. do it before its too late. dont think about the cost's or embarrasement that can be thought about after. get your family safe first.

In my listing i provide a free rnli cd rom/bootlet, this is in no way part of the sale. it does not and never has or will be something that should be taken into account when you bid. its purley a free guide that comes fromt he rnli. i provide it simply because i am a responsible seller. selling over the internet i do not have the option to talk face to face regarding making sure the buyer is competent with the item they are buying. so this is the only way for me to be satisfyed that they will have at least, a basic understanding of the rules of the water and its dangers. i myself donate to the rnli and they are aware that this is something that i do. unlike other ebayers who sell these booklets my only aim is to provide safety information to try to prevent the rnli from having to respond to calls that could be avoided.
