The Montrose lifeboat open day, which was threatened by poor weather, went ahead as planned at the weekend.
Members of the public enjoyed the opportunity to tour boats and chat to the crew about the work of the RNLI.
Face painting, refreshments and a variety of stalls, including a bottle stall and raffle, were also available.
A lifeboat station was established at Montrose in 1800, making it one of the oldest stations in the British Isles.
The first Montrose lifeboat was one of 31 boats built by Henry Greathead between 1800 and 1803.
In 1873, Silver Medals were awarded to coxswain W Mearns and coxswain W Mearns Jr for the rescue of the nine crew and one small boy from the Brig Henriette of Memel that ran aground in a south-easterly wind three quarters of a mile north of Montrose on December 21 1872.
