Burnham-On-Sea RNLI welcomes back Puffin lifeboat

Burnham-On-Sea RNLI station has welcomed back Puffin, its D-Class lifeboat, to the station.

After a scheduled refit lasting several months, the lifeboat finally returned to active service today (July 18th) at its home lifeboat station.

Where lives are concerned there can be no compromise, so during the boat’s visit to the RNLI lifeboat repair centre, all equipment was removed, the hull stripped, engine thoroughly serviced, and all worn parts were replaced, or serviced.

Puffin has effectively been returned to Burnham in the same condition as she was when brand new.

Helmsman and mechanic Nick Prout, whose allocated duty it is to oversee the maintenance of Puffin, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We are glad to see her back, we have missed her."

Nick is picrtured above looking over the stern of Puffin.
