News : Francis Searchlights donate Lamp

The Senior Coxswain, crew and members of Southport Lifeboat would like to thank the all those at Francis Searchlights of Bolton, especially Marc Thurston for their kind donantion of a powerful marine based searchlight. This light will now help us to illuminate the vast areas of beach and marshland within our operational area during search and rescue operations. Powered from 12 volt auxiliary outlets on either the Launch Vehicle or the Quad Bikes, the light can be transported to virtually any location and erected in a very short time on its own purpose-built support tripod.

The searchlight has been affectionately christened 'Cheesey', in memory of Humphey, a West Highland Terrier that was sady lost on the marshland north of Southport. Humphrey also had the nickname Cheese as it was one of his favorite treats
