Storm-damage-to-Criccieth-RNLI-lifeboat-container

Byline: On Friday the 3rd of January 2014, volunteer crew members from Criccieth’s RNLI lifeboat station were called to relocate a container temporarily housing their inshore rescue boat, after stormy seas had moved it 20 feet from its original location.
Page Content: ​The container weighs several tonnes and temporarily houses the station’s smaller Arancia class inshore rescue boat.  It was washed towards the sea by large waves earlier in the day, during a storm which saw widespread damage along the coastline.

The operation required the ​use of a lorry-based crane to move the container to another location away from the sea for the time being, as further storms are predicted.  The inshore rescue boat was checked for any damage before being promptly placed back on service.
