One boat of interest just arrived in the our marina is the old Seaham lifeboat the George Emily.
Built in 1948 she was involved in the tragic loss of eight crewman at Seaham when she capsized in November 1962.
She was in a very dilapidated state and has been restored by South Shields boat builder Fred Cowell and is only temporarily here before going to her new home as centrepiece at the new Seaham Heritage Centre.
