The experimental lifeboat FCB2 has been at Hoylake for several weeks. This is the prototype lifeboat that is not going into production. That will be the Shannon which starts sea trials in 2012.

However, the new Lifeboat Launch and Recovery System by SUPACAT is being tested at various sites to see what alterations are required to suit the diverse conditions the production vehicle will face when in service.
