12-25 Bingo Lifeline

Relief lifeboat

Mersey class lifeboat 12-25 Bingo Lifeline was on station at Skegness most recently in September-October 2013, while our station lifeboat Lincolnshire Poacher underwent an engine replacement in Grimsby.

Bingo Lifeline was brought to Skegness from Hartlepool during a 10-hour passage on 29 September 2013, with a quick lunch stop at Whitby.

During her time in Skegness, Bingo Lifeline was involved in one of the station's most dramatic call outs in years, when she was called out in a severe gale to assist a vessel in trouble off Hunstanton, Norfolk.

This was Bingo Lifeline's second visit to Skegness, having also been utilised as a relief lifeboat at the station during 2003.
