Isis Gardens and Hayle's Lifeboat Isis

Hayle's first lifeboat - Isis

Hayle had its own lifeboat from 1866 until 1906.

Its first boat was the ‘Isis’.  A self-righter, thirty-two feet in length, pulling ten oars, paid for by Oxford University.
She carried out ten rescues saving fifty lives during her twenty-one years of service.

In 1887 ‘The New Oriental Bank’ later renamed ‘The F. H. Harrison’ replaced ‘Isis’. She was a thirty-two feet self-righter and her saddest service was to the ‘S.S. Escurial’, when she had to be taken overland to Portreath beach to be launched.
In spite of her best efforts only seven of the eighteen crew were rescued alive.  read more »
