There is some debate as to wether she was the imediate relief boat for the Penlee disasters Solomon Browne. As AMT was near identical to the solomon Browne (SB) and slip launched, and that the Dublin boat could cover Howth as well, it seemed sensible for AMT to replace SB for a time not less than 6 months.
I could be very wrong but trying to contact Howth station for any information has been fruitless, I don't think they open their post or look at e-mails!!
you lucky man.........i could think of worse things to spend my money on, but the misses would demand divorce. just have to console myself in building models of them instead, lol.........not quite as expensive.
