New Shannon Class Lifeboat Visits Ramsey Harbour

The RNLI prototype Shannon class all-weather lifeboat is currently undergoing sea trials in the Irish Sea and is seen here visiting Ramsey Harbour.

It’s the first modern RNLI all-weather lifeboat to be powered by water-jets instead of propellers, making it faster and more manoeuverable when reaching casualties and is expected to be seen within a year or two in the Isle of Man.

The image was captured on my Nikon D80 DSLR Camera with a Nikon 18-105 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens, cropped and resized in Adobe Photoshop CS6.
