ReFit 2006 - Isle of Wight

Return to top of page

Once an All Weather Lifeboat underwent a major refit every five years, or less if deemed necessary by the engineering staff. Now it is based on engineering need, rather than a strict timescale. During refit, the boat is stripped down, and effectively rebuilt, and equipment updated.The Seahouses Mersey Lifeboat had her last refit in 2006, below are some photos. A skeleton (Seahouses) crew sailed her back from the Isle of Wight boatyard, which also built her.
