The Royal Navy Lifeboat Institute has recently upgraded their newest class of lifeboats, the Tamar.

Since the Royal Navy Lifeboat Institute (RNLI) was founded in 1824, its lifeboats have saved more than 137,000 lives. In 2005 alone, RNLI lifeboats rescued 8,104 people—an average of 22 people per day. Rescuers will be able to provide much more coverage with a new camera, delivering critical surveillance video aboard the Tamar, the newest class of lifeboats in the RNLI. A durable metal dome design provides reliable performance in the extremely harsh conditions of marine applications. The Extreme CCTV cameras help the officers of the RNLI perform their mandate to provide 24-hour lifesaving service around the UK and Republic of Ireland.
