This is the K.T.J.S. so photo is before 1933 as that was the year the Thomas McCunn came to Brims.
(Note the single screw)

I will take your word for the info on the name I only quoted what was written on the back of the pic and the date used is only as you have to put a date on this pic, could be very much older.....

Seems your right John, there was only 2 of these single screw lifeboats built. The pic must have been taken about the time of the Thomas McCunn's arrival, but took pic of wrong boat......so date probably 1933...
