Final slipway launch for Douglas lifeboat

The crowds turnout on Sunday to see the final slipway launch for the Sir William Hillary. First stationed in 1988, the lifeboat has served for 29 years and is one of just two of this class still in service with the RNLI.  The replacement Shannon is scheduled to arrive once its berthing facility has been constructed.
