She is called Sophie. She should have been a police dog. We did'nt realise she was a Malinois  and thought she was some sort of cross bred German Shepherd. We got her from a dog rescue organisation when she was a year old.

I wonder what it would be like in a force 12 at 60 knots?

If it could do 60knots in a force twelve the vessel and her crew would be damaged beyond repair.

Impressive !  The checkout at the gas station should also be impressive


Oppose speed and sea state capability does not really make sense - a high speed boat can always reduce the speed in choppy sea where slow boat will not accelerate if flat sea !

Agreed,
but the design of a hull for high speed
does not always make it sea kindly in
extreme weather when most rescues are
made.
There must always be a design that allows
a decent speed as opposed to the weather.

Yep and it's always a statistical issue, by the way I'm not sure that most SAR cases are made during extrem weather.

Ned
that is what I was meaning ned in a tongue in cheek way.........speed is no good if one cannot use it.

I think that the RNLI  have reached their best optimum speed for their boats in all weathers with what they have, and very seldom would a speed of 60 knots ever come into place.

This is taken from the article: "When we analysed rescues we found that around 90% of them occurred in fine and moderate conditions where high speed could be a great benefit."

The Berthon Boat Company, who built the Shannon Class for the RNLI, have announced their own 14m SAR Boat design.

Sorry, Berthon, but in my humble opinion, not a very exciting or aesthetically pleasing boat to look at.

Not a patch on the RNLI Shannon for looks, in my mind.

I suppose others will argue to the contrary, but just my views.

Mind you, having said that, if I were bobbin in the oggin  I  wouldn't care a jot if the SAR was shaped like a barrel as long as she and her crew saved me from eternal damnation for a year or two more.

Agreed Jim  :-))


Next time I'm in need of rescuing I shall radio the Coastguard
that if a Shannon is not available I will swim ashore  %)

Will be interesting to see if Berthon's do get any orders for these, since most countries SAR organistions like to design their own boats. I guess it will depend largely on the costs. I didn't see any mention of the construction material, but if it is built from FRP like the Shannon, then the initial cost of the moulds is going to be pretty substantial.
The designer also has a website with some other designs, which is worth a look.

Swiss SAR have taken delivery of this very nice looking Parker Wheelhouse RIB for use on Lake Zurich. Powered by twin 300 HP 4-stroke Outboards.

Now that would make a fine model,if a drive system could be made to look like the outboards.

This is the 'RS Einar Staff' - the latest addition to the fleet of the Norwegian SAR Service. Can't find too many details about her, except that the top speed is 45 knots, and she is the first of 10 similar boats to be built. She certainly looks the business!
