Some still shots of some of the historic Dutch lifeboats based at Den Helder Museum, well worth a visit to this ex-Dutch Naval Base. Lots to see besides the lifeboat museum including a submarine and many other boats afloat.

Hi Arrow,
I have always wanted to visit the musem, but have never got around to it. And i was in Holland on holiday in the summer:(
They do have a website, which contains some interesting photos:

I love the hull shape of the old Javzee, it's a real 3d work of art...

Charlie, you have to back.  The double-decker train makes it easy to get to from Amsterdam, nice little town Den Helder too.  Highlight of museum is the steam engine with a push button to get it going (electric), silent engineering from the past.  A walk through the submarine is good too, nice guys to explain everything.  Nice tearoom with English-speaking lady.

A few years ago, a group of us from the lifeboat museum at Chatham went over and stayed a few days in Den Helder, visiting the KNRM museum (which was in the town then, rather than with the Naval museum as it is at the moment, I believe), then they took us out into the Waddenzee, in, I think, the Prins Hendrik, and one of the big jet boats. You can see why they strap in, when you do a crash stop from about 35 kts...


We also had a tour of the main KNRM headquarters in Ijmuiden and one of the stations running a Valentjn class (the same as they have at Caister now).


It was a really good trip.
