Need Help Identifying RIB

Hello,

I'm new to the board and need some help identifying a RIB my agency is acquiring from the USCG. I could not find a hull plate or any other manufacturers markings. The boat is approximately five meters in length and has a Yanmar Diesel engine with the water jet drive. Any information would be appreciated.

It is an Ambar. Used to be carried by USCG cutters. Good boat but very slow. There was one on Ebay recently.

Ain't you the desert girl expert! I believe your limey roots given your knowlege of such. Are you shipwrecked out there or in the Maricopia County Jail?

Thanks, Tomas for your "polite" comments. Do you have manners in that "other" country

I nearly purchased this specific boat a few months ago from the guy that bought it at a military surplus auction. Had quite a few E.Mail chats. Max. speed is no more than 25knts. light loaded. However, it does appear to be in quite good condition. Would make a good harbour patrol/ tug boat.
