Members of St Helens Marine Rescue gathered on a perfect March day to carry out the annual hull check of the Freycinet. The mighty rescue vessel was slipped at 9 am with work commencing soon after. De-fouling – barnacles and sea weed removed by pressure hoses followed by anti-fouling painting and finally concluded with the removal of old corrosion plates to be replaced by new. After four hours the Freycinet returned to the water, fresh and ready for another year of rescue activities.
