Photographic postcard of the Coverack Lifeboat being launched. Taken around 1948. The photograph is taken from the top of the slip looking towards Lowlands. There are a number of people on the rocks sitting watching the launch and a small boat filled with people in the bay. The Three Sisters served at Coverack between 1934 and 1954. She was a 36 foot Liverpool Class motor lifeboat funded by the Legacy of Miss M Quillar-Couch of Looe.
