Hi, no that was his business partner on a RIB owned previously by 4Charter at Portsmouth which they brought in occassionally if their boats were out. That RIB had a very hard life and recal someone calling for its history well after this photo after it was seen sinking on a mooring

Reading the listing it says the Rib hasn't yet been purchased and will be at least a 7.5 with at least a 225 hp outboard, he mentions that potential purchasers will have a say. Looks like he's using a generic Rib pic.

Oh ok, i went on one on a 4charter boat as well, skippered by Paul as Dan (i think he was called Dan) was busy! Kernow i think you're correct as the same photo is on the Onboard charters site, ( Rib Charter ) which is where i recognised it from!

I might have to stand corrected, it does look like Paul on the On board site, and Yes it was Dan who ran the 4charter RIB and it ran alongside Alice the Thames Barge his father still runs. Dan gave up to run a garage.

As you know On Board still operating and I was going down to help collect another new RIB with them this week

I hope that is the case as owning the old 4charter RIB might be a problem if all areas not rectifed, I have a horrid feeling I met the buyer at Southampton Boat show after he bought it and was talking about buying a new hull and putting all the rigging on that.
