My Trip out on the Katwijk Lifeboat
« on: September 28, 2015, 11:37:06 am »

During a recent holiday in Holland, we were lucky enough to be invited to join the Katwijk Aan Zee Lifeboat for a trip, during one of their Open Evenings. I have posted a short Video here :)

Thank you for sharing Charlie.
 
That's an interesting setup they've got there.
 
Some adventurous modeller might want to have a go at making one of them.  %)
 
...and the young lad (12 to 22 seconds in on the video) looks like he fancies stealing it. {-)
 
Regards,
 
Ray.

Caister lifeboat have one of those Valentijn class boats. They're an independent station, and bought it themselves.

Nice video, someone has already modelled one of those class, there's some pictures on this page:

They would make a fantastic model but I think it's a bit out of my skill set to do it justice.
