Built in 1943 by Philip & Son, Dartmouth, JAYMAC is an RAF Air Sea Rescue Launch of timber construction with an inboard diesel engine by Perkins, 100 hp manufactured in 1942. Little is known of her history which is the subject of ongoing research by her present owner. She is believed to be one of four boats of her type built by Philip & Son and still has her original superstructure with an added wheelhouse. Her current owner intends to restore her to look as near her original specification as possible.
