A view of the yacht, 'Lady Busk', owned by Hans Busk and built by Henry Tipping of Portsmouth. Hans Busk the younger (1815 - 1882) was one of the originators of 'England's volunteer army'. Originally it was his intention to adopt a naval career and, being forced to abandon it, he devoted much of his leisure to yachting. He mastered the principles of naval construction, and made designs for several yachts which were very successful. He was the first to advocate life-ship stations, and fitted out a model life-ship at his own expense.
