Visitors were granted permission to go aboard Lowestoft's lifeboat during the annual RNLI SOS fund raising event.
There was a rare chance to explore the Tyne offshore lifeboat and meet the crew during the event at the RNLI lifeboat station on the town's South Pier.
Home-made cakes baked by fund raisers and hot drinks were also on sale.
The open-day on Friday, which was one of hundreds being held for the RNLI across the country, raised more than £300 and the gift shop also reported strong takings.
Josie Moore, chairman of the fund raising team, said she was pleased with the turn out. She said: 'Everybody worked very hard.
