The James Stevens Lifeboat No14

Walton’s first lifeboat, Honourable Artillery Company no longer survives, so James Stevens No.14 is the oldest of Walton’s surviving lifeboats. Many of her crew have relatives still living in the area. What better gift could Walton`s heritage receive than to have this historic vessel returned for restoration to seagoing condition for future pleasure trips. As a floating exhibit she will illustrate traditional boatbuilding methods, early lifeboat design and hands-on practical experience to the general public.
