6 new Damen SAR 1906 boats are going to be built in Turkey, for the Turkish Coastguard.

Over in Canada, they have started building a 19m version of the RNLI's Severn Class, for use by the Canadian Coastguard.

Hi Jim,


There is a General Arrangement drawing on the designer's website here:

But would be tricky to build a model from that, without some lines or sections.

just  been studying that GA, and it looks to me as though the section between the two sets of midships bitts has been lengthened rather than anywhere else, either bow or stern, so someone with good knowledge of laying up grp could mould a section of straight midships from an existing Severn kit and splice it in.


the superstructure could be made from those plans I reckon by a good model maker.....I have a friend!!!............anyone have a spare 1;12 Severn hull to borrow, lol.

First of the Canadian Coast Guard Severn Class Lifeboats is afloat. Looks like it sits rather lower in the water than expected, possibly :o

  They are professional seamen
 Xtian


I think that is a little defamatory a statement itself Xtian, as you speak of defamatory statements.


As our own RNLI lifeboat crews, although volunteers, are probably trained professionally to as high a level and standard as any full time SAR crew in the world, if not better in some cases, and it matters not a jot as to the professionalism of those brave crews from what ever country they come from whether the crew is full time OR volunteer.


They all deserve our praise and support.


by the way, those French boats are commonly nicknamed "beak boats" because the bow configuration looks like a parrot's beak..........I quite like the name, and love the boats.

Neil,

remember that he is a foreign national not typing in his first language. I don't think he's meant any offence
I think what he means is they are professional seaman as in full time employed crew and the vessel as he states is always on the move between port to port on standby.


Then also... remember he said that 2 years ago  :} :embarrassed: {-) %%
