WHY DOES THE RNLI SPECIFIY DUROWIPERS ON ALL SHANNON CLASS HIGH SPEED CRAFT?

Safety and clear vision is perhaps one of the most important issues facing the RNLI and any high speed craft operator in rescue, pursuit and rapid operations.

The question was asked; are cheaper windscreen wipers, requiring regular replacement, adequate or is a higher quality durable windscreen wiper the necessary solution.
