    A
    new £1.5 million RNLI vehicle used to launch lifeboats from the beach
    became stranded overnight at Hayle after getting stuck in the sand.
    Crews are still working on putting its caterpillar tracks back on.

    Drive at 1700 with Naomi Kennedy.

  • Nick Farrar They
    are hoping to drive it off the beach tomorrow (Sunday). It's being
    dragged onto heavy metal plates to give it a firm platform, then being
    jacked up, the tracks will be reconnected and then if all goes well
    driven off the beach.

    It's
    not as serious as it has been reported, just a few teething problems
    that will be addressed before the vehicles are rolled out over the
    country.
  • Keith Letchford This
    looks like a development of the experimental Supacat launch system that
    was tested at Hayle in 2007 with the prototype FCB2 lifeboat,
    subsequently abandoned. Supacat developed the tractors further for the
    RNLI and I think they have been deployed
    for
    the last year or two in various locations. I would imagine that these
    tests here are in anticipation of the new Shannon lifeboat coming to St
    Ives in a couple of months, which was also previously tested at Hayle in
    2013. It is the lifeboat that costs £1.5 million. The local RNLI
    branch has had to raise £100,000 for the new launch vehicle. They
    deserve our support, it's Hayle seafarers who will benefit. Usual
    lightweight BBC reporting.
  • Peter F Clemo A track laying vehicle stuck in sand...beggars belief really
  • Michael Donnithorne Messed up the beach and still in the summer season!
