Question Mabel E Holland has been lost!

Mabel E Holland is a Watson 42 lifeboat circa 1950's and she was used by David Scott-Cowper for his two record breaking circumnavigations, the second one via the North West Passage.

She was bright yellow with an orange superstructure but may have been painted, and was last known of on the Thames a year or so ago. She may well still be on the tidal estuary somewhere. I'll see if I can find a pic.

The Lifeboat Enthusists Society and the Historic Lifeboat Association would like to trace her. If anyone hs seen her, or better, knows the owner could they reply to me please.

Eight years later, mystery solved!
I thought that having more patience was a result of my getting older. Turns out that I just don't give a sh*t.
