Can anyone help

I have recently purchased a small rib, it was sold as a project and possibly made by Narwhal. I have contacted Narwhal and they said it is not made by them.

There is no plate or serial number on the hull.

Can anyone identify what make it is from the picture please?

Not sure of the cause of the pitted effect on the hull, looking for the best way to repair it.

Flocoat or re-gelcoat it?

Is that small blisters that the tops lifting off? Or some kind of impact damage? If it's impact damage like stone chips then I guess you could just fill and send back
If it's blisters with water underneath then it's probably osmosis which is bad news . The proper cure is to strip the gelcoat back to the laminate then re-gel and sand back to a good surface finish.
how big an area is affected

Yep it does look like the results of osmosis... the curse of on the water all year river craft. Most used river craft of any value are subject to surveys when sold and the presence of osmosis blisters can result in a quote of 25%-100% of the craft's value to properly repair.

Less of a problem on a smallcraft that's out of the water when not in use though. If you aren't that worried about the cosmetics it would go on ages using as-is. If it's a restoration job then you need to dry it out for as long as possible and refinish. For a small area gel coat filler would probably be fine... if it's the whole hull then it will need a bit more of a pro finish.
