Another Metzeler anyone

Any ideas on what this is?
4.9m front to back. Centre 2 man console with luxuary inflatable seat. It is narrow, about 1.2m inside the tubes from memory. I wondered if it was a Metzeler because it has removeable tubes. The bow is different to Suzuki Pete's, but looking at the tubes they may be hiding something. It has a hard pad on the top of the bow tube. There is gray paint under the yellow. Also it has twin elephant trunks.
It belongs to Langstone waterski club and was used by Langstone Harbour Patrol in about 2001 - 2002 if that helps anyone.

The forefoot doesnt look deep enough to be a tornado hull.

Ex Royal Navy Tornado, which explains the removeable tubes.
