Some of you may recognise this boat. It' s been in Stockholm a few years, at the moment at a boatyard in the city.

Bit of an odd one. The name on the side says Soldian, which was the ex Lerwick Arun 52-10, but that was sold to Iceland, as the Reykjavik lifeboat ‘Asgrimur S. Bjornsson’, and according to MarineTraffic is still in Reykjavik...

Looks like a round transom so can only be one of four boats 54-04 54-05 54-06 or 54-07 according to wikipedia 54-07 "City of Bradford IV" is "Ship's tender in Sweden" so most likley 54-07

You amaze me with your knowledge!  Next time I pass I'll see if I can get some information about her.

54-07 was the Humber Full Time crew's boat
with Brian Bevan as Cox'n.
