Caister Lifeboat

Softrak has arrived

Thursday 20th April 2017

Sofrack 1


We have just taken delivery of a a new Softrak to replace the tractor we have used to launch our Insfhore Lifeboat. With catterpillar style tracks rather than wheels it will make pulling over the beach much easier and with a rear flat load space we will be able to transport casulties and crew. The new vehicle has numerous fittings and features that will assist us so watch for technical details later. The cab allows a driver and two passengers in an extended front and side viewing module. Main cotrols are on a single gear stick which returns to neutral when released.
