The Shipwreck Museum at Arreton has several old lifeboats and a lot of information and is the centre for the Historic Lifeboat Trust.
I was given a photo and information about the Lifeboat Worcester Cadet which was stationed at Brighstone in 1860.Her most famous rescue was the crew of the Sirenia in 1888.
I believe this info came from the Historic Ship Museum at Newport.
