  • Submitted a challenge entry Hovercraft
    This is the Hunstanton Hovercraft.  It's the only piece of equipment that the RNLI at Hunstanton has, that can reach the sea by itself if the tide is out. There is no pier and a very sandy beach.  If a rescue needs to be immediate the hovercraft is used as  the lifeboat has to be taken to the sea  on a tractor and is slower, much!
