    She looks a bit like a 'converted' traditional ship's lifeboat?

    +1 She definitely looks like a lifeboat.

    How old is the picture? Does the boat in question still exist?

    So many of these gained a sheathing of grp in the 1970s which although giving a few more years life made them almost impossible to repair.

    Thanks for the replies.
    The photo is very recent - so the boat still exists! It is moored on the Bridgewater Canal at Worsley and is believed to be in the ownership of a sea cadet group.
