Selsey Lifeboat Station – you can smell the sea

Selsey Beach - m.joy

 

Very soon this view will be forever gone. No Gantry and no Lifeboat Station out to sea. The final launch was a few days ago and the Lifeboat rests on the beach until it too is replaced by a more modern one in July. Rumours that the Lifeboat Station out to sea will be taken away by tug to some new owner, seems are just rumours – no glorious Valhalla for this piece of history. In May or early June – it will be demolished and the view of the sea will be uninterrupted. My dads’ uncle one of the many who voluntered on the Selsey lifeboat was also a fireman and i have also been out on the boat when it launched – scariest moment when the boat hits the sea.
