Each year thousands of people from the East Midlands pack their suitcases and head to Skegness for their summer holidays.
Sometimes they get into trouble at the seaside and have to be rescued by the town's lifeboat.
Now Skegness is getting a new lifeboat and its been named after a man who's dedicated his life to the RNLI.
Skegness is getting a new lifeboat earlier than planned thanks to a large donation by a volunteer who spent 45 years working for the RNLI.
Joel Grunnill died last year. The new vessel will be named after him and his cousin April, who has also supported the RNLI for many years.
