Atlantic 21 and D Class maintenance manuals RNLI

Hi all,

Does anybody know where I could get the old RNLI mechanic/maintenance manuals for the Atlantic 21 or 75?

Also, is there any source for the old operations and station mechanics manuals for the D-Class / Avon EA16

I'm trying to repair/restore them to their former spec.

Hi Instead of creating a new thread I wondered if anyone knew how the earlier D classes had their anchor setup?


Cheers Jake

The ones I've seen, had the anchor box secured to the floor with bolts, washers and wing nuts. There is a metal eyelet/ring secured to the floor of the box and the end of the rope is secured to this. The line and chain are then laid in with a Delta anchor sitting on top. There is also a 360 rotating link between the chain/rope.

I've seen the line run through the carabiner on the bow for anchoring purposes then tied off.

Atlantic 21 and D Class maintenance manuals RNLI

Think the EA version of the D class had 2 anchor line lengths depending on local operating conditions ,
standard was something like 40 metres or a longer 50 metre could be ordered depending on local conditions ect .
As SAR said the end of the line was secured with a bronze eye bolted into the bottom of the Anchor box
then run through the carabiner on the front of the bow dodger ,
the line could then be adjusted & made fast using a grab handle or the more secure Figure of "8" ( mountaineers descender ) normally used when Veering that is secured with a very short strop to the starbd side lifting eye on the floorboard .
