Four months into the year and only nine shouts for either lifeboat, is that a record? Hopefully for everyone it will continue like that, but it's good to know that we have a good crew there willing to come too our aid at a moment's notice.
Keep up the good work and thank you to all the crew.

Yes Mark, a very slow start to the year!

Hi Mark,

The RNLI's current plan is to replace all Atlantic 75's with 85's over the next few years. I believe they are building 8 per year. However stations such as Plymouth with an ALB seem to generally be the later ones to get the new Atlantic. This is due to the fact that the ALB has radar and VHF direction finding equipment; which are two key additions to the 85. The Atlantic 75 is a great boat and perfect for the area around Plymouth.

Could any one tell me is the Atlantic 85 replacing all @Atlantic libs in future or will there still be Atlantic 75s for stations that have off shore lifeboats?

My Mother and I are big supporters of the RNLI and are both Shoreline members. We both love Plymouth and I wondered whether I can help your station by producing the design for any posters etc that you may need doing at anytime. This would be done free of charge at anytime for you.

Please let me know if this would be possible and if it would aid your station in anyway.

Kindest Regards

Hi Glen The class of I.L.B. you refer to was the 18' 'A' class Mclachlan the first one came to Plymouth in July 1972 and that type of ILB served at Plymouth until 31st December 1983 when it was thought that Plymouth no longer needed an inshore lifeboat.

I think I have of photograph of the Plymouth McLachlan some where and when/if I find it I'll get back to you, What I can tell you is this class of I.L.B. was also stationed at Brixham, Falmouth and Oban I believe there were 7 in the class but every one was slightly differant I/e some were petrol and some diesel, some had forward and others a midship helms position, but as you will know the problem with them was they weren't self-righting and couldn't be beached.

Sorry I don't know which boats served at Plymouth but I believe 18-003 and 18-007 were stationed here.

Another fact that you might be interested in is that Inshore Lifeboats serving at Plymouth between 1967 -1983 were launched on 177 ocassions and saved 73 lives
