David Stogdon and his work as a lifeboat and RIB designer.

I have just read a really interesting article in the Telegraph, It talks about the work of a man called David Stogdon, who has died aged 89. David Stogdon said “there should be no more lifeboat widows” and as a result of his ideas he was a driving force behind the change of boat style used by the RNLI to a RIB. These RIBs are used today by our lifeboat service(RNLI) and others around the world.

Stogdon set out to design a lifeboat which could not be sunk and which would not capsize and trap its crew.
