OOh no, you cant do that around there, they'll get the lifeboat out. I've been on smeetons pier in St Ives, debating whether it was too windy to go out diving off a RIB, when the boom went up. One boom for a practice. Then the next boom went up. Two for real. Everyone stopped and men came running from all directions, and the lifeboat was chugged across the sand and launched.
We didn't go out diving that day. There's a fine line between bravery and stupidity.
We went and ate more pasties instead.
