No idea to be honest . I don't think it is ex-RNLI, but certainly ex-commercial. Assuming one pressure valve per chamber, it has 5 chambers in the tube, which is good going for a 3.5 metre SIB.

Cheers

Chris

For 150 I wouldn't be bothered what make it is although it is nice to know. It does look as though its been on a ferry or something.
Whats the writing on the bow?

Easily sourced mate. You'll find most pumps will have one.

The writing looks like 'Earl of Pembroke' which is a tall ship.

i have seen them used as safety/rescue/workboat on tugs in the baltic sea,there was a company out Birkenhead way that had one for sale last year on the net ,Dont know the builder ,rough guess it could be Dunlop or posiden that made them .certainly well built and up to some code, going by the twin drain trunks and the retro-reflective x tape ,,,suppose it could scub up , though if you re stuck the tatty bits, patches/seam tape it would paint up using flexipaint ,,,,,only problem with ex ships boats ,,there usually a bit faded with the sun and blathered with seagull shit and deck paint ,,,mart

I'd just give it a good going over with dilute TFR then a protector and get out there and use it.
