Title: Brian Roberts' Holyhead Lifeboat
Post by: Robert Davies on September 06, 2009, 03:26:14 AM
Being as Brian Roberts of this parish, had his 1/12th Holyhead Lifeboat out on the water yesterday, I thought you'd like to see a few pics of it in action.

I'm sure Brian can answer any questions that you may have.
