THE ORIGINAL LION FOUNDATION RESCUE IS WEST COAST BOUND.
We are pleased to announce that Auckland Coastguard Board has reached an agreement with Coastguard West Coast in Greymouth for the transfer of ownership of our original LION Foundation Rescue (Naiad).
We are very pleased with the result and that we could support Coastguard West Coast and their very challenging conditions and keep LION in the Coastguard family.
Coastguard West Coast currently operate a 12.5 metre Protector (ex Swashbucklers – now for sale) and LION will take her name upon arrival – IVAN TALLEY RESCUE.
LION gives them improved abilities in many respects, certainly towing and she will be a great asset for the West Coast.
Delivery to the South Island is targeted for December/January.
CHRISTMAS CAKES ARE US..... CLICK HERE to get your order form
Share them with your family and friends.
It was an old boating tradition that no self respecting boatie set out without christmas cake onboard. It was claimed that bacon and eggs with fried christmas cake was the breakfast that would get them through the longest roughest and wettest day. During a race or a stormy passage every so often you shoved a slab of christmas cake into the helmsmans hand.
Purchasing our christmas cakes is a win win. Great cakes, you get to eat them and keep this Coastguard unit on the water helping others.
