"It's not often you see a wooden boat being hauled through the streets of Whitby and the volunteers did a great job of ensuring she had a safe passage.
"Thanks to Sue Paling from the Black Horse and Ian Taylor from The Endeavour who provided bacon sandwiches and hot drinks to give an energy boost to our volunteers.
"The old lifeboat has been well looked after at Coates Marine so thank you also to the staff their for all their support."
