I must be mad doing this in the present climate says my head, however the heart says crack on! Finally tis done! EX all weather RNLB Royal Thames is coming to Portland and will be Deeper Dorset’s new survey vessel. Perfect for our requirement’s and direct from service she hasn’t been messed around with and still benefits from the meticulous attention the RNLI are famous for. Pictured as the Eastbourne lifeboat she already looks a lot different now with superstructure finished in light grey and all RNLI markings removed. Name change is next to comply with RNLI agreement and then it won’t be long before we are back in action.
