Byline: A Porthmadog based specialist rock engineering firm, Colin Jones Rock Engineering Ltd, has helped Criccieth RNLI lifeboat secure a steel container used to temporarily house their inshore rescue boat.

The container, which was moved during last year’s powerful winter storms, has now been bolted in place by the company’s specialist engineers using ground anchor bolts.  All costs were met by the company as a gesture of goodwill towards the station.

It is expected that a permanent boathouse will be built to house the station’s smaller Arancia Class lifeboat, Margaret a Nantw, and the 4×4 used to tow the boat and transport the crew and their equipment, on a nearby piece of land.   

Following the work, Criccieth Lifeboat Operations Manager, Peter Williams commented “I’d like to thank Dave Jones of Colin Jones Rock Engineering Ltd for offering to undertake this work as a gesture of goodwill.  The ground works will help ensure that the container is safely anchored during the coming winter’s storms.  It also demonstrates how the goodwill of local businesspeople helps the charity meet its requirements”.
