|Sorry about the quality - the top image was
`filmed` off a photo , then blown up .....shows the above launch which took
place at absolute low water on a big spring tide - the lowest tide at which
the lifeboat has ever launched from the slip at Sennen Cove. .....(thanks

|One of our Crew now has the dubious honour of the first
Sennen Cove lifeboatman to fall into Newlyn Harbour from the Lifeboat.
Having endured all sorts of rough weather over the years , he chose to fall into the calm filthy water of Newlyn......!
