A history of RNLI motor lifeboats.
The story of the motor lifeboat is one of continual development, the implementation of technological advances, improvements in design and construction, and the provision of ever faster and more sophisticated rescue craft to keep the volunteer crews of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution safe as they go about the task of saving lives at sea.
This comprehensive volume provides details of every RNLI motor lifeboat that has seen service in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
The individual lifeboat types are described in detail, with the text accompanied by numerous diagrams and line drawings, as well as outstanding and unusual photographs, many of which have never been published before.
Due to be published November 2019.
