If you don't pursue it please let me know as our one Y-55 may need 8/900 worth of restoration work with no guarantee it will ever be any good. A newer Y-class would be better than having to go for a generic tender.

RNLI Y Class - show and tell please!

Max,
I think its just at a point where it can be saved, not a lot of work to make it into a useable boat, but if it was me, its a lot of work to get it to how I'd want it.

Someone should save it. It wont last much longer sat there.

My thoughts exactly Sam, compare it to the orange one I pictured above and its (obviously) worlds apart but very salvageable but maybe not through another season of UK weathering...

Problem is they need to go through due process to locate the owner and it may be a year or so before it can be released for sale.

My D Class was in similar condition too. Bit of powerspray and varnish and it'll look completely different

Finding the number!

Hello, recently I have been trying to find out the history behind my D Class. Only one problem is that I do not have any number on the side of the tubes (example d-123). I do have the code on the transom but that is from Avon themselves nothing to do with the RNLI. I have sent the transom code to RNLI and they can't do any research with this code AVB 89948 L495.
My questions are, does anyone know where there are other RNLI markings on the boat other from obvious? Can anyone tell me anything from the code given?

Many thanks
-Harry

You could see if there is any marks underneath from the paint on the bottom or even marks where it was removed?
