This rivetted aluminium vessel is believed to have been a ships lifeboat. The conversion to a steam launch was undertaken by the owner over a period 2009 to 2013. It is fitted with a Merryweather boiler and Stuart Turner S type engine driving an alternator to charge the batteries that in turn power a Ray 4hp outboard motor.
