I have been told that the RNLI sent all there drawings for Ex lifeboat designs to the National Maritime Museum at Greenwich. Saying that I know they still had the 52' Arun drawings available quite recently as the last one had only just gone out of service. I know the contact at the RNLI for drawings has changed recently I will look the new contact out and send you a PM.

You should be able to get these from Poole, the NMM have everything before O.N. 800 (I think) - this would have been boats built in the 1940's.
