RNLB Jane Anne is an important survivor from Irvine’s past, and a rare example of its type in Scotland. It’s a double-ended, self-righting, pulling and sailing lifeboat, which was based at the town’s RNLI station. It was manned mainly by the locally renowned Sinclair family and participated in seven rescues, saving 12 lives.
Built in 1898 by the Thomas Ironworks Co. in Millwall, London, Jane Anne began operating out of Irvine shortly afterwards and remained in use there until the station closed in 1914.
Rescue boats like Jane Anne were sitting outside of water on life-boat transporting carriages. This meant that vessels could be moved to the required location at the harbour and then launched.
The “Tipping’s Plates” surrounding the wheels, facilitated the transport of the boat in cases where long stretches of soft sand had to be traversed before deep enough water was reached allowing the vessel to float.
The model was created as a part of ‘Scanning The Horizon’ 3D Digitisation Project.
