Whisper, that is a great boat! Beautiful. Do you restore former RNLI boats often?

Nice photos.

Are you able to take 3 kids out in the boat space wise?

Looks good, well kept!

Do loads of rescue boats but only about three ex RNLI ones, they're collectors boats now really as the Rnli have stopped releasing them lovely little boats to own and use.

What kind of work was required to restore those boats? I can imagine that they are well taken care of when in service with the RNLI.

Mostly finding them in good condition and then finding all the parts. Once you've done that it's cleaning and repairing any loose bits. Varnishing might be in order too.

Yes, they do seem hard to come by and the ones I thought about buying had gone before I could go see them. Look like well built little boats though, I can see why they are desirable.
