A different view and perspective on the RNLI Humber Lifeboat. Here a crew member is cleaning down the deck on the bow of the boat. This type of work is carried out every six months in dry dock. The boat is given a thorough clean and wash down with the hull and keel given particular attention via a high power jet water spray to rid the hull and keel of any debris such has barnacles etc. Then the whole hull and keel is repainted with a special fast drying maritime paint.
In Dry-dock at Alexandra Dock, Grimsby, South Humberside, England.
