Olivebank LifeboatToday's Friday photo is of one of the lifeboats from the steel sailing ship the Olivebank.  Built by Mackie & Thomson of Govan in 1892, she was known as an unlucky ship and was built for Andrew Weir & Co.

There is a fab picture of her in full sail from the Australian National Maritime Museum on flickr here.

Specification details available here and an article about the Olivebank is also available on the Clydebuilt site here.
