Dragon to the rescue

Waspie

War Hero
Not meant as a derisory comment of the RNLI. No one would disagree the magnificent job they do.

But!!!

Two days prior to the Dorset Echo printing about the Dragons rescue and the chap getting in the water to free the prop. Weymouth inshore boat was given a similar tasking. No one got in the water, instead they elected to cut the offending rope wrapped around the propellor. Then, called for the ALB, (All Weather Lifeboat), to tow the stricken yacht to safety.

So our LET from the Dragon went above and beyond in my opinion. Hope he gets recognition for his efforts.
