The RNLI established an inshore lifeboat (ILB) station with a D class lifeboat and the ILB was housed in an old wartime bunker in the cliff.
The D class lifeboat was withdrawn and replaced with a C class lifeboat on 14 April. A new ILB boathouse was built on the harbour quay.
Trials were carried out in October using a B class Atlantic 21 lifeboat and a DoDo (Drive on-–Drive off) launching trolley.
The C class lifeboat was withdrawn and an Atlantic 21 lifeboat was sent to the station on 15 October.
An old farm building was modified to provide crew facilities and accommodation for the Atlantic 21 lifeboat and launching tractor.
