Oh dear another "ex rnli"

It wont have been used as an actual inshore lifeboat if they did ever own it & doubt that the mercury blue band motor is either, though the rnli have used a few different boats for various projects such as training & evaluation purposes , think they still use a very old dilapidated Grp sailing yacht that was donated to them at poole for teaching crews how to deal with sailboat incidents so i suppose that could be classed as ex rnli when its disposed of lol ,
another genuine ex rnli boat for sale on flea bay recently was a "Sillinger "ex boarding boat but they do use them & that ones genuine .
Best "ex rnli "boat i saw for sale was a blue campari with a tomos outboard ,, obviously well serviced ,, "rolleyes "lol

I think that is a Humber / Delta Seasafe.

Looks a LOT like mine probably did before all the bullet proofing fell off the toobs. Different console, and mine has a lot of handholds along the inside of the toobs for the 9 it is rated to carry. I don't know what the Range at the time looked like, but I would guess that was the workboat version (single Jockey with lots of aft space), or a variation of a pre about 1985 FRC maybe?

OK, I lied.

The Seasafe didn't have a well or knees. I should probably have scrolled a bit further down before posting above!

This might be an Attaque or possibly an O-Pro. Either way the "buillet proofing" of the toobs hasn't changed much!

I guess the engine instanly made me think "older".
