Rx26 is still active & busy, moored these days on the other side of the river, just upstream from the camber tramway station in the background of this image. She has changed though, these days she is smart in yellow with white topworks and (i think ) a fibreglass hull! nor is she designed for beaching as is this one (note the high scalloped stern to provide lift while beaching and suppress wave effects)

The 'scalloped' stern is called a 'lute' which differs from a rounded 'elliptic' and a flat 'transom'.
