A common sight on the Fraser River she has offered assistance to mariners in trouble on over 650 occasions.
Hey Outmywindow, the Steveston Lifeboat is featured on the cover of the current issue of Western Mariner magazine.
Neat boat, didn't realize she was wood.
Speaking of wood, the issue features several local wood boat builders. Beautiful stuff!
