Harbet, named after Harold and Betsy Hollingsworth, from Cheadle, Cheshire. They bequeathed £54,000 to the RNLI for a new lifeboat and because Harold had fond memories of Fleetwood and frequently sailed from the old fishing town, it was decided to choose the new Fleetwood in-shore lifeboat in their memory.
