Kinghorn's B class Atlantic 85 lifeboat, Tommy Niven heads out to sea. The mostly orange lifeboat is pictured from astern heading out to sea. The wash from the boat creates crested waves on the surface of the sea. The sea is calm, and the weather is fair. The sky is overcast. A thin strip of land is visible on the distant horizon. There are three crew on the boat, all looking away from the camera.
