Built by the "Thames Iron Foundry" in 1906 of double diagonal mahogany, she went into service at Lynmouth Devonshire where she served until 1944.

She was a pulled and sailed boat with 5 pairs of oars and was self-righting. 
Her rudder, stern whaleback and hull are original, as is the cast iron keel. This alone weighs 1 1/4 tons and is held by 27 bolts. 

This is a 100 year old vessel of Historical interest.

Recent restoration work carried out includes:-

Boat Safety Certificate
Hull survey (2 Years ago)
Antifouled
Bedroom and Kitchen restoration 
External Brass work restored and lacquered
Deck varnished
Temporary wheelhouse fitted to make her waterproof
 Repainted above the waterline

Lynmouth is fitted with two marine 8 hp side-valve petrol engines,  one of which has been used by the owner within the last two years. Both however require some attention. The fuel tank has been removed to obtain the boat safety certificate.

The lifeboat was on station through two world wars.
