The Humber lifeboat took a trip up the coast to Bridlington Harbour earlier in the week for some routine maintenance of the vessel.
The lifeboat, aptly named Pride of the Humber, was lifted out of the water by the purpose-built hoist in Bridlington Harbour and the hull was inspected by a team from the RNLI.
After the routine inspection, which lasted a day, Humber Lifeboat headed back south to its permanent station at Spurn Point which is the only permanently manned station in the country.
This information on the Humber Severn Class Lifeboat is from the RNLI website.
With a top speed of 25 knots and a range of 250 nautical miles, our Severn class lifeboat can reach casualties fast in calm or rough seas. Factors crucial to our plans for a faster and more efficient 25-knot all-weather lifeboat fleet.
Her power also means she can tow large vessels out of danger.
She may be the largest lifeboat in the RNLI fleet, but our Severn class lifeboat is very agile.
In addition to her twin marine diesel engines, the Severn lifeboat is fitted with a hydraulic-powered bow thruster for improved manoeuvrability – essential for when the lifeboat needs to come alongside a casualty.
Her power can be applied quickly so that she can be manoeuvred out of tight situations.
And her propellers and rudders lie in partial tunnels created by the twin bilge keels, which provide excellent protection from damage in shallow water.
