Boarding Boats

As the name suggests, Boarding Boats are generally used to access the All-Weather lifeboat moored off-shore. 

In many locations they also proved invaluable being used for searching, helping moor large boats that have been towed in by the the All-Weather lifeboat, taking persons out of the water, allowing fast access to shallow or close-inshore waters near the stations.  

Most boarding boats are EA-16 most of which are ex D-Class retired from SAR use. Sillinger built boats are also used and Malahide type boats that are only used at stations north and south of Ireland.

Note: Table below is a work in progress. Any further information will be welcomed.
