Model of Joseph Francis' Metallic Lifeboat

Content Description: 

The U.S. government and other private companies often used lifeboats to rescue victims of maritime accidents. Lynch and his men used two of Joseph Francis' metal lifeboats as their means of transportation while navigating the River Jordan and the Dead Sea. Their lifeboats were named Fanny Mason, after the daughter of Secretary Mason; and Fanny Skinner, after Commodore Charles Skinner's daughter. Lynch referred to the boats collectively as "the fannies."
