Flamborough RNLI's lifeboat returns to South Landing
Flamborough RNLI saw the return of the station's lifeboat Elizabeth Jane Palmer on Wednesday (25 January) after 12 weeks away for a refit of the lifeboat.
The Elizabeth Jane Palmer has been refitted with a new Systems and Information Management System (SIMS) which will allow the volunteer crew members to access and operate the vessel's navigation, communications, machinery and systems all from one console and from the safety of their own seats.
