The pavilion will be constructed using those two mahogany lifeboats that were manufactured by the Thames Ironworks and Shipbuilding company.
One of the boats (Frederick Kitchen) is in remarkably good condition but has been stripped of all its metal features. The other (John Ryburn) is in very bad condition but has retained all the original brass and iron features. The Frederick Kitchen lifeboat will be refurbished, incorporating features from the John Ryburn lifeboat, and will be used as a canopy on a purpose made structure that will be walled with glazed panels to ensure maximum visibility into and out of the pavilion.
Tasks may involve:
Cleaning wood and metal parts
Cataloguing parts of the boat
Taking boat a part
Working with hand tools
Using a ladder to get in and out of the boat
Helping to set up a workshop
