US Customs RIB

Spotted on the Potamac River, on my holiday to Washington DC last month. Anyone care to guess as to make? (Also a good excuse to see if I can upload pictures!)

Upon closer inspection, I do believe the bow is slightly squared off, and I remember some time back in an article in RI about a pretty awesome yellow RIB made for the US Navy called a 'Nautica' .
So that's my guess - Nautica Ribs

Now that you have shares in RI, no doubt the marketing will be stepped up.........

It looks remarkably like the Zodiac Hurricane to me
Especially with the bmini cover and console shape etc.
Also those and boston walers are v porpular with US units
