BARB is one of those services that when you see out on the bay, well equipped, professional, in any and all weather and at any time of day. That they must be a publicly funded service like the police, or ambulance service. But that isn't the case, the crews are all volunteers and the kit is all paid for through charitable fundraising.
It's a service where the results and activities leave you in no doubt that it is essential since it was set up and incepted. I can't crew because I had a serious back injury in my youth, so that leaves raising a few quid and making people aware.
