Waddilove 1 Launch

This week at UWC Atlantic College, a rescue boat with a revised engine type has been launched. Michael Creber, who drives the Atlantic Pacific Tsunami Rescue Boat Project said, “we have launched our latest addition to the seafront fleet – the rebuilt Waddilove 1 . She is a development in engine type as we are trialling an outboard water jet that will allow us in to shallow areas.  It is hoped that this will allow us to expand our capabilities with flood and disaster relief as we continue our partnership with Atlantic Pacific International Rescue Boats and aim to send boats across the globe to set up stations using the “Lifeboat in a box” concept of Robin Jenkins (AC 91-93).  More news on this as the first boat “Kamaishi Maru” will leave for Japan next week to set up the first station in Northern Japan and will be met by recent students and staff in August who will train the first Japanese crew.”
