Submit A Link
If you are have a website related to lifeboats then you are welcome to request
a website link here. Simply contact me with your URL and some background
information about your website. I try to verify the links on on a regular basis,
however with so many links it is not always so easy. I would ask that once your
website is accepted that if you change your website address or if it become
unavailable that you let me know so I can change it. Links which fail verification
will be marked as such and removed shortly thereafter.
Whitby Lifeboat Station is our local station
and therfore the first to feature on this page. The station represents one
of the busiests stations on the east coast, however as good as the design
and layout is it sadly let down because it rarely updated.
Whitby Lifeboats is more than an enthusiasts
website, this belongs to a Great Great Great Grandson of Robert Leadley
and Great Great nephew of Matthew Leadley who lost their lives in the 1861
Lifeboat Disaster. The website is really informative and as a personal website
it is well worth a visit, simply follow the link to the right.
Scarborough Lifeboat Station, is the next all weather lifeboat south of Whitby. The site has been
awarded the Maritime Webs Gold Award in the past and is therefore a interesting website.
Staithes and Runswick RNLI Lifeboat Website may be basic but it is still an informative website,
unlike many lifeboat websites it is updated in an almost real time mode, quite an achievement.
Runswick Bay Rescue Boat is a website that provides
background information about the Runswick Bay Rescue Boat after the RNLI
closed its offical station in 1982. Serving on a voluntary basis, the Rescue
Boat has operating costs of around £5000 per year, much of which is met
by the local community.
Independent Lifeboats Uk, The Independent Lifeboats UK website
was set up to increase both public awareness and funding of Independent
Lifeboat services throughout the UK and the world.
None of the Independent Lifeboat Services featured in the site are managed
or funded by the RNLI or the government. They are run and rely on donations
from the general public, businesses and their own fundraising events.
The Seahouses Lifeboat Station is one of my favourite lifeboat
websites, hence its feature here. The station covers much of the Northumberland
coastline an area I enjoyed diving.
The Royal National Lifeboat Institution needs little
introduction, a charity not funded by the government yet big ehough to serve
the British Isles.
Shorething A fun and exciting website for the younger enthusiast
with exciting downloads. It has wall papers, screensavers and things to
entertain and share.
Lifeboats 24 - 7 is a five star international
and very comprehensive website, a must for lifeboat enthusiasts. It covers
quite a lot european lifeboat stations with links to many of today's lifeboat
Lifeboats An interesting look at lifeboats serving the Flamborough area.
44ft Motor Lifeboat
A website that contains an amazing amount of U.S. lifeboat information and is
dedicated to the remarkable 44' Motor Lifeboats. I have added it here not only
because it is lifeboat orientated but because it introduces the USCG 44328 lifeboats
the RNLI acquired in 1964. Twenty one boats were commissioned and classed as
the "Waveney" type of lifeboat after the river in which the first
boats were built, I hope you find the as interesting as I have.
Forecast Latest Shipping forecast from the Met. Office.
Inshore Forecast Latest inshore waters forecast from the Met. Office.
The hyperlinks below lead to website's which are related
to lifeboats and those supportive of the treasured work carried out year in
year out by the RNLI. When designing this part of the website it was my hope
to be able share relevant lifeboat orientated links. Compiling such a comprehensive
list of suitable websites has taken sometime. The hyperlinks are intended to
help promote the work done by other lifeboat enthusiasts and current RNLI crews
and volunteers. I hope that you find the websites interesting, just don't forget
to come back! If you come across a broken link, I would be most grateful if
you would let me know so that I can fix it as website addresses invariably change
on frequent basis! If there is a website that you feel deserves to listed here
please contact me.
