Preservation attempt for Ex Lowestoft Lifeboat

A group of volunteers are currently working on raising funds to return the former Lowestoft Thames Class lifeboat 50-001 from Ireland to Lowestoft.

The plan is for her to become a community resource where young engineers can learn about techniques used to build boats in the past and then for various uses to keep her as a working boat.

If anyone is interested in helping with the project or making a donation have a look at their web site

50-001
