Caister Lifeboat has been saving lives at sea since 1791. Completely independent, we depend entirely on public donations to help us provide safety and rescue services to the countless vessels, crews and beach visitors to this area of the East Coast.

The Iysha was taking on water. Crew Andrew Turner, Richard Miles and Steven Sheales were first on scene, followed by Jamie Smith, Karl Purenins, who brought two petrol powered pumps, and Jack Atkinson. Our pumps helped remove four feet of water from the fishing hold and engine room, assisting the two pumps already running. We left at 20h00, the vessel sitting about four inches higher in the water than when we found her, and the skipper of the vessel is assessing repairs.
