The Africa Mercy Lifeboats

Rob has been busy and going to training! He recently took a course and received his Certificate of Proficiency in Survival Craft and Rescue Boats at the South Tyneside College Marine Safety Training Centre. This is an advanced safety course and he was able to launch, maneuver and rescue using various lifeboats (The biggest one - a 50 man enclosed lifeboat, an open lifeboat (similar to the ones on the Caribbean Mercy) and the Zodiac Rescue boat). The picture above is of the Africa Mercy Life Boats (the 2 guys in blue are our crew members).
