Book Description

 
One hundred years ago, the first tentative steps to introduce motive power into the fleet of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution were taken when a small petrol engine was fitted to a pulling lifeboat.  Since those early days, when motor lifeboats were small open craft with single engines, the RNLI has come a long way.  Modern lifeboats are now complex, technologically advanced craft providing the skilled, and highly trained volunteer lifeboat crews with a sophisticated rescue tool.  This unique book celebrates a century of RNLI motor lifeboats and includes details of every one, with descriptions of each class accompanied by many high quality photographs and line drawings.
