The plethora of incidents took 14 hours over the holiday weekend for volunteers on the Hamble lifeboat.
The team was called to nine different locations between Friday and Monday, including a search for the missing man, a police incident and a red light hearing.
It was across the waters of the River Ichen, the River Humble, the piers and Southampton.
The five incidents were endless, with volunteers forced to move to the station after connecting via a pager.
But despite rising fuel costs, the charity is poised for the inevitable escalation of accidents as warmer weather sets in.
Southampton’s Ale Barry became “Pub of the Year”
“The Easter holiday brought beautiful weather,” said President James Godwin.
“The combination of good weather and a bank holiday weekend always gives the UK coastguard a high probability that a rescue boat is needed; We have been taught over 50 years of operational service.
“We completed 122 incidents in 2021; we expect a similar number this year.
“We are always ready to launch 24/7, 365 days a year and to make sure the boats are fully loaded.
“The rising cost of fuel is really forcing us to make some changes to the use of railways and ships, but that doesn’t affect our ability to deal with accidents as needed.”
Earlier this month, Hamble Lifeboat told Echo it was cutting diesel consumption.
It needs to raise around 60,000,000 annually to cover its running costs.
The number of volunteers and the number of volunteer hours will remain the same.
“Our main message for anyone in or near water is to always stay safe; “Don’t take too many risks and wear a life jacket or a support device for water activities,” added Godwin.
Volunteers were also busy out of the water.
Over the past two weekends, so-called book ladies selling their fundraisers have raised over 1,000,000 for the service.
“We would like to personally thank you for your hard work and dedication in raising the funds needed to help us run,” the charity said on Facebook.
