RNLB KATHLEEN MARY: 'ON 950' is a Watson Class with a 1979 self-righting conversion. Formerly stationed at Newhaven, she cost £34,500 to build. A gift from an anonymous donor. She was built by Osbourne's yard, Littlehampton. KATHLEEN MARY was in the reserve fleet until late 1990 and was assigned relief duties around the coast of England. Also, in 1989 she was stored at Penlee boat house, Newlyn Harbour, Cornwall. The mahogany/Oak hull is a special design being diagonal 'X' lap double skin with special canvas between, bolted every sq mm. All top cabin structures, hatches, and doors are aluminium.

After RNLI service, the lifeboat was released but re-named KATIE MAY, and stored at Mashford's boat yard in Plymouth. Then in 2013 transferred via Liverpool to Salford on the Manchester ship canal. Engine maintenance is by Gardener Engineers Manchester, trim by MPE Interiors, and electrical maintenance upgrade by SeaKing; both of Birkenhead. KATY MAY was fully repainted in the late Autumn of 2015.
