welcome to Ribnet

a photo of the rib might help, is there a serial number stamped into the transom, that might help identify the make and model ?

These look like the earlier JP model Optimax. They will only run on JP5/JP8 F44 military fuel! So hope you can get that from somewhere locally!!

Yes it is Optimax JP and they work very well. They take 45% less fuel.
It`s the boat my question is about!

It *might* be a Pacific (22? 28?) - someone who is more into their military spec stuff may be able to confirm from the pics in the pdf... https://ics-documents.s3.amazonaws.c...ade_67_794.pdf

Definitely a Halmatic, no doubt. Retubed I suspect.
