Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The Robert Whitworth (RNLI Lifeboat)
The lifeboat we took overland (The Queen Victoria)in 1999 was similar to the Robert Whitworth and complete with carriage weighed in at over 6 tonnes, taking it down the Bank at Robin Hoods Bay was fun !!!. Once we had rounded Laurel corner we took it off the carriage and onto skids and slid it the rest of the way to water. It was rowed back to Whitby the following day by RNLI crew members.
