"Saltire" ON 802, a 46ft Watson lifeboat, enjoying retirement, seen at Crinan Basin, on the canal.

(ON 802 is a 46' Watson class, was "City of Edinburgh" when stationed at Wick 1938 to 1968, during which time she was launched 133 times and saved 204 lives, (earning a bronze medal in 1942), she then "retired" into the relief fleet until being sold in 1976)

Looks good. If I was to ever get a boat then an ex-lifeboat is what I'd go for.
