New owner, excited, slightly daunted!

Hi all

Picked this up yesterday...

http://www.rib.net/forum/members/248...cture7914.html

Thought I'd start with a stunningly basic question, what make is it? Then I noticed it's the same (I think) as the forum's banner photo. So hopefully not too hard to identify.

Thanks
Jon

The RIB on the banner is a Ribcraft (7.50 Sport I think, but someone else will be able to confirm exactly).

Might need a few more pics, but plenty of Ribcraft owners on here to advise if it is indeed from that stable!

Hi. That isn't a Ribcraft. Can you post some more photos? Tube appears to have quite a taper on the bow - not sure if Olmec made any boats this size but has that sort of look about it. More photos should reveal the answer!
