RNLI Launches Advice Onboard

The RNLI has replaced the old Sea Check with a new and upgraded service simply called RNLI Advice Onboard. The new service has changed in a number of significant ways.

It still offers advice on safety equipment, and more has been added to reflect recent developments in technology. In addition, it has been expanded to cover more than just safety equipment and now offers more advice on what to do if a range of things go wrong, such man overboard recovery and rigging emergency steering. 

To book an Advice Onboard session with an RNLI volunteer, one can either ring 1800 789589, contact your local lifeboat station, who will pass your request on to their Lifeboat Sea Safety Officer or log on to
