In 2014 we replaced part of our old failing jetty with a a pontoon berth for MH30, an essential safety requirement to enable level access for transferring casualties ashore regardless of the level of the tide. We left most of the piles and walkway of the old jetty in place as we simply didn’t have the funds to remove them, and as we only had a single operational rescue vessel, there was no urgency to remove the failing structure. Now that the new MH20 has arrived, we must reprioritise the removal of the old structure to make room for an enlarged sea-pen which will berth the new boat. (The sea-pen is a type of “dry dock” for storing small boats out of the water to prevent corrosion and marine growth). We are seeking support to remove the old timber piles and walkway that run parallel to the shoreline in front of our base. Please contribute or contact us if you would like to assist.
