Work is well underway on Lyonesse, the 10 metre Brede Class lifeboat, brought from the United Kingdom to Cape Town harbour at no cost to NSRI.
The no frills refit is happening while Lyonesse is moored at Table Bay’s Sea Rescue base in Cape Town. So far her fuel tanks have been cleaned and the redundant wiring removed. In ten days she will be taken to Hout Bay to be resprayed in NSRI’s colours and readied for her SAMSA inspection. Once the work is finished she will serve at Mossel Bay.
