Royal National Lifeboat Institution Day

About ten days ago, I posted a double feature of sailors.  While putting that together, I rediscovered some photos of the UK's Royal National Lifeboat Institution's crews and individual members.  So that led to today's completely off the wall series.  Or is it off the rails?  Whatever.  Sometimes I post things that I don't like, knowing that others will appreciate them, and today I'm posting something I like that others might not.  Anyway, we'll get back to our usual nudity, etc., tomorrow.
