Traditionally the only time that members of the public could have a guided tour of Weymouth RNLI all-weather lifeboat Ernest and Mabel was as part of lifeboat week. 

That has now changed thanks to RNLI supporter Jim Fegan who, following a successful trial last year, has decided to offer guided tours of the lifeboat on Tuesday & Thursday mornings. There will be two tours on each of those days with the first at 10.30 am and the next at 11.30 am, each tour lasting for approxrimately an hour. 

Jim says that each group is limited to a total of 12 people and they will have to book in advance at the RNLI shop in Weymouth. The tours will be free but it is hoped that those on the tours will make a small donation to the RNLI which being a charity relies solely on public donations.
