Categorisation help on Ships' Lifeboats versus Ships' boats versus Search and Rescue boats versus Rescue lifeboatsEdit
- Shore-based rescue boats were commonly called "Lifeboats" in the 19th and early 20th centuries. In the United Kingdom "Search and Rescue boats" are still named "Lifeboats". Where this term is used, shore-based rescue boats may be classified as "rescue lifeboats".
- Not every ships' boat is a lifeboat. A "lifeboat" generally has survival gear, is built to survive rough water, and can carry more than a few people. Lifeboats carried on ships, to provide for evacuation of personnel in the event of sinking or fire, should be classified as "ships' lifeboats". "Ships' lifeboats" may double as tenders. "MOB (man overboard) boats" are rescue boats carried on ships. They are generally small, fast, and equipped with rescue gear.
