The new Selsey Lifeboat launches and retrieves their boat in a quite different way to the past when there was a boat house on a pier.
Here you can watch what happens whilst she (RNLI 13-20 Denise and Eric) is on an evening exercise down at the beach.

Initially the crew were nervous about beaching her like this but as you can see now they power in!
Then the caterpillar tractor retrieves the boat – which is equally fascinating to watch.
