Whitby’s 103-year-old lifeboat Robert and Ellen Robson pulled through streets

Whitby’s RNLI crew and other volunteers gathered at Coates Marine to pull Whitby’s old rowing lifeboat, the Robert and Ellen Robson, back to its home at the lifeboat museum on Pier Road. The boat has been at Coates Marine undergoing restoration work but will now get a final lick of paint at the lifeboat museum – the RNLI hopes to reopen the museum this summer. Until 1957 RNLB Robert & Ellen Robson was still in service in Whitby with 10 members of crew providing the muscle power on the oars. Video, >click to read< 22:35
