Master Frank – RY95 is a Manx built, half-decker fishing boat seen here berthed in Ramsey Harbour.

Master Frank is the Island’s longest surviving half-decker. Records differ as to whether she was built in 1893 or 1895.

Measuring 40ft overall, Master Frank was built by Messrs. Clucas and Duggan, shipwrights, boat and canoe builders and block and spar makers, whose yard was at the rear of Marsden Terrace in Ramsey.

Ramsey Harbour swing bridge links the main part of the town of Ramsey, to Mooragh Promenade, which runs along the seafront. It carries both a road and a footway over the Sulby River, the bridge was completed in 1892 and the intricate metal work spans 64m.

The Swing Bridge is closed at present for essential maintenance work .

Both of the images were captured on my Sony HX20V camera, resized and cropped  in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

The RNLI prototype Shannon class all-weather lifeboat is currently undergoing sea trials in the Irish Sea and is seen here visiting Ramsey Harbour.

It’s the first modern RNLI all-weather lifeboat to be powered by water-jets instead of propellers, making it faster and more manoeuverable when reaching casualties and is expected to be seen within a year or two in the Isle of Man.
