    My respect and appreciation go out to the rescue crew.

    It seems that the rescue crew secured the victim before he could succumb to hypothermia.

    Very well done!

    A good result all round. Well done.

    Normally the lifeboat crew wouldn't rescue the boat so that was a bonus.

    Well done, the RNLI! Another 'soul' still a living, breathing human being and not just another depressing 'statistic', thanks to the skill and expertise of the life-boat crews.

    No neither would I, assess the risk especially if putting to sea in an open boat especially looking at the pictures of the boat which does not seem to have any extra boyuancy and wetsuits! not the right gear for going to sea in the winter, VHF radio, Flares, Immersion/Drysuits!!!!

    Going to sea ill prepared puts other peoples life in danger!!

    At least no one died this time!

    Full marks to the RNLI but why should they put their lives at risk for muppets

    Why should they put their lives at risk for anyone?

    The rescue crews do not denigrate those whom they rescue or recover, why denigrate the victims on a thread which honours the rescue crew, why denigrate the victims at all!
