From the picture I think the lifieboat was a little bit bigger than an Atlantic 21.

Your imgaination is too vivid. Must be the aftereffects of Stella

went out to see here today. Some good rub marks on her starboard side , mid ships, at water line, could they be those from the lifeboat.
Hope they paint them before the Queen arrives.
Anyone contacted Cunnard and got the contract to paint , easy job from the rib....
