There is No plate at that end just one fixed to the inside of the transom. Photo to follow...
there is one on the outside on the transom reads ( GB ) AVB 1985 5E 898.
there is also an imprinted number on the hull reversed numbers
It may well have been a custom made item just for Swansea council.
Your rib seems so much newer than 1998 I may be wrong there though.
Mine seems very commercial with the rubbing strakes and large consul.
But as everyone is saying Searider maybe its a hybrid .
But I do know it was made for Swansea council and nothing has been altered on it.
Also it was made for twin engines as the drain Elephants trunk is in the middle of the transom.
I will photograph the plate and post it here.
But it deffo says AVON ADVENTURE D5.60 1998.
I must have a custom bitsa ??
