Category talk:Lifeboats

The categorization help is a start, but this category is still heterogeneous. One reason, besides current use of the term Lifeboat for rescue boats in the UK and elsewhere, is the more widespread past use. I propose to split the category into Category:Ships' lifeboats and Category:Rescue lifeboats. the latter would include any rescue boat that was called a lifeboat (officially or by the image source if contemporaneous with the vessel or authoritative). Both would be subcategories of Category:Lifeboats; Category:Rescue lifeboats would be a subcategory of Category:Search and Rescue Boats as well. Category:Ships' lifeboats would be a subcategory of Category:Ships' boats If there are no objections I will start in a week or so, time permitting.Dankarl (talk) 01:55, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
