Just to be accurate that Tamar in the Tenby boathouse isn't the Station boat  (16-02, Haydn Miller)  but the a relief Lifeboat ( 10-06, Frank and Anne Wilkinson).

Still nice pictures though !!    :-))

that's right Dan.
relief boats don't have a station name on the transom.
and another clue is that they (relief boats ) usually have red antifouling so that they can be kept afloat.
More of the Tamar slip launched boats these days are painted with an off white boot topping as in the old days when all slip launched station boats were painted white underneath.
