St Davids RNLI Lifeboat Station
Inshore Lifeboat: D-class “Myrtle & Trevor Gurr” The RNLB Myrtle and Trevor Gurr (D-704) is one of the RNLIs highly successful IB1 inflatable inshore rescue boats. She was allocated to the station in December 2008 and was donated by Mr Richard Gurr at a cost of approximately £31,000. She is the second ILB to be placed at St Davids following the RNLB Dewi Sant / St David (D-543) which served at St Davids from 1998. The boat is stored in the ILB garage on the middle floor of the lifeboat station. She is kept on a trailer which is lifted onto the slipway using a davit when the lifeboat launches.  The trailer and boat are then lowered down the slipway using an electric winch. The D-class inshore lifeboat is 4.95m (16ft3in) in length and 2m (6ft7in) beam, constructed of nylon coated with hypalon and is fitted with a 50hp outboard motor to give a top speed of 25 knots. As an inshore lifeboat there are limits placed upon her operation and she is usually escorted by the all weather boat when operating at the upper end of these limits in darkness or strong winds. The D class is fitted with VHF radio, GPS (satellite) chart plotter for navigation, night vision, first aid equipment, anchor and drogue. In the event of capsize she can be manually righted by her 3 crew members.
