12-33 Fisherman's Friend

Relief lifeboat

Mersey class lifeboat 12-33 Fisherman's Friend was the relief lifeboat at Skegness during 2004 while Lincolnshire Poacher underwent a refit.

Lincolnshire Poacher's return on 8 May 2004 provide a rare opportunity to see two Mersey class lifeboats on the beach at the same time, as Fisherman's Friend sat on the carriage ready to launch once Lincolnshire Poacher was recovered onto the beach.
