I've mentioned before that old lifeboats are disposed of at the end of their life and often find their way into private ownership. We've just received a bulletin from headquarters offering for sale a number of 'x' & 'y' boats for sale. Basically these are small inflatable craft which are carried upon larger All Weather Lifeboats to enable access to rocky shores and perform transfers between larger vessels. These are all made by Avon and seem good value but not a bargain. It strikes me that the RNLI disposals team is very aware of what they are worth and are keen to maximise the return......perhaps they keep a close eye on eBay prices?
