The crew of the Ferryside Lifeboat are all volunteers from the village. Currently on the crew are:
Mike 'Iowa' Hackfort - Senior Coxswain
Fished out of the sea by the boat years ago, this Iowan works to earn his keep while studying charts to figure out where he is and how to send word home...
Anthony 'Pie' Rees - Coxswain
A man who cares passionately about the boat (and pork scratchings). When he's not down the lifeboat shed, he's manipulating people's protons using a ridiculously hi-tech MRI machine.
Andy 'Morgs' Morgan - Coxswain
Morgs is a former tank driver who's swapped his tracks for outboards. Now has to act as the ships dog after the sad passing of the previous incumbent.
Richard 'Jonesy' Jones - Coxswain
Simon Lamble - Coxswain
Our DOIC (Divisional Officer in Charge), he's the less famous brother of Guy Lamble.
Dave Atkinson - Coxswain
Best beard on the boat. Dave builds stuff for people to use when they're playing 'pretend'.
Pete Bailey - Senior Crew
Can tune pianos, surf, tie complicated knots and owns a smurf costume. Spends long periods of time away at sea. Probably a spy.
Mark Foxton - Crew
Now retired, therefore can't afford a barber. Struggling to understand the meaning of the word retired though.
Mark Lucas - Crew
Mark's a bit of a hoarder.
David Martin - Secretary
An ex-Assistant Head Teacher now 'Head of the Shed'. A strict disciplinarian who keeps our attention on the fundraising.
Jack Foxton - Trainee Crew
Would rather we didn't have engines
Jordan Daniels - Trainee Crew
Most decorated member of the crew. Takes being a sailor very seriously.
Steve Baynton - Trainee Crew
Failed goat farmer, failed metal worker. Tells people to turn it off and back on again.
Grant Holder - Trainee Crew
Blows sh*t up. Pretends he doesn't enjoy his job. Probably currently on holiday.
Liam Ross - Trainee Crew
Scottish. Not quite sure what he says. We think he might work for British Airways.
Tony Walsh - Senior Shore Crew
Has occasionally been known to crack a smile - we think it was probably wind.
Gordon Meiklejohn - Treasurer
Scottish bean counter. The perfect combination.
Claire Lucas - Training Manager
Seems she like the less hirsute types!
Ned Stephens - Trainee Crew
The new boy
In memoriam - on the bright side, the crew can eat their bacon sandwiches unmolested.
