The long-serving Whitby lifeboat in retirement at the port, seen here in 2003.

Today's trips were out to the piers and then back upriver, very enjoyable on a warm and sunny day!

Heard today that she's on the sales market, very surprised if she should leave Whitby as so much a part of their heritage.

Did a trip on her in 2018, the owner/skipper indicated that 2018 would be his last year as he had been diagnosed with cancer. Was surprised and happy that she was still in action last year.
Hopefully she will remain at Whitby, as its a very pleasant way to spend a few minutes at sea and very good value at £3.

Very sad to hear that Simon, let's hope she can find a new owner in Whitby, and not dispappear to be forgotten up some canal or creek.
