Ex Trinity House Pilot launch, Hull number 54, transfered to Estuary Services Limited in 1988, then to Port of London Authority, based on an Arun Class lifeboat hull, although has a flush deck.

An excellent sea boat, but she was much slower than the 44' Nelsons on the Sunk service, given normal weather conditions.

Pilots' saloon was separated from the crew position by internal doors. Could be a bit 'big' due to her own freeboard when doing low freeboard ships in poor sea conditions.
