Photos of 44-001/USCG 44328

 

Photo RNLI

This boat is quite unique, as it is a bit of a mix between the US Coast Guard and the RNLI boats. It’s original US Coast Guard number was USCG 44328 and was acquired from them in 1964. Since that time it was altered on a number of occasions and had some of the same modifications as the rest of the RNLI Waveney's, all of which were built in England. The hull though is the same as when she was purchased.

These photos were taken by Capt. R W Witter, USCG Ret. who was involved in the design, development and the introducing of the 44's into service with the USCG and the RNLI. The photos were taken at the London Docks on the 19th May 1964 and show the 44-001 being unloaded from the steamship "Alaunia" after arriving from the USA.
