Full hull model, lifeboat, broadside
Scale: 1:16. A contemporary full hull model of the lifeboat 'Tyne' circa 1833. The double-ended hull is constructed plank on frame, in clinker fashion, and is complete with small decks bow and stern, which provide watertight compartments for added buoyancy. It is pulled by 14 oars and steered by a large oar over the quarter at either end. Internally, there is a deck grating covering relieving tubes, which allow the removal of water should the lifeboat become swamped. For added buoyancy and protection, a layer of cork is fixed just below the gunwale at either end on which is inscribed 'Tyne Lifeboat'.
