The Weston RNLI crew were out on a training session of some new volunteers during the morning of Sunday 20th November both on the sea front and Knigtstone Harbour.
Two lifeboats were launched with the assistance of the £160,000 all - terrain rescue vehicle and lifeboat trailer.
This vehicle can cross softer mud, and over to the water.
Previously the crew had to wait until the tide was at a certain level before they could launch a rescue.
