Whitby Lifeboat

Whitby Lifeboat

Whitby’s Trent Class All-Weather Life Boat ‘George and Mary Webb’ on station at Whitby; the boat arrived in 1994; it has a range of 250 nautical miles and can reach speeds of 25 knots. The boat is designed to lie afloat (it does not have to be launched) as it is ready to go at any time; a useful attribute when considering the history of earlier lifeboats at Whitby and difficult launches.
