I Need An Help From A Swedish Speaker

Thu Oct 14, 2010 10:29 am

Yesterday I was in Norrköping and I saw this

The only word I understood is that there is something forbidden.

Can you help me, please?

Thank you

I think it means:
Rescue boat.
The use of the boat or other live saving equipment for any purpose other than lifesaving is forbidden.

Isn't that what I said? All I did was shift the forbidden from the start to the end of the sentence so that it makes more sense in English, or should I say, to me as a speaker of Australian English (if Australian can be described as English.)
