LEFT Paul Field Crew Chief Trillian Rescue Alpha .
Alpha is a Dedicated Rescue Vessel (DRV) designed and built by Naiad. Her sister ships are in service with Coastguard Hibiscus Coast, Coastguard Maraetai.
Alpha is crewed by seven teams of 4-5, rostered to approximately one weekend day every three weeks.
The commitment to ongoing training is significant with onwater training on weekends and fortnightly training sessions in the evenings at our base.
2014 TRILLIAN RESCUE ALPHA REPORT TO AGM.
Alpha is performing brilliantly. She is well into her 5th year of service now, and was given a 4th birthday present of a lick of paint and some minor refurbishments and modifications - repositioning navigation lights, new carpet, new trim tabs and lowering the motors a touch.
The result has been very pleasing. She has always been a very good boat. She is now an outstanding boat. We are constantly delighted with the handling and performance which gives the skippers and the crews’ real confidence that she can handle pretty much any conditions that are thrown at her.
She looks great, performs impeccably and is an absolute pleasure to use.
Thank you also to our sponsors - without you we wouldn’t have a boat to do what we are passionate about - “Saving Lives at Sea”. We especially mention our main sponsor Trillian Trust who are always there for us. Thank you to the Board of ACI, to our staff and to all the crew of the other vessels who support us and help to fill the gaps when they occur.
