Can anyone identify This Rib

Hi all I have posted before with regards to the identity of this rib. But ive got some better photos now.
I am doing a lot of work on it, and it would be nice if I could put a brand name on it so I'm more informed as to its capabilities. It has been suggested it may be an early Ring. It is 6.6m ish long, 2.6 wide 1.6 internal width.
It seems quiet nippy and easily got to 45mph on the gps with 2 up and 83 litres of fuel, with a 100hp mercury with a 19 pitch prop.
Please Please all you rib Gurus help. I seem to be spending all my time now searching google images

Also has anybody ever come across this. there are four hatches in total two forward and two in the center of the hull. I am glassing them over but they were originally filled with bolted clear acrylic panels. and each pair are in what seems like waterproof compartments.

RIBase
That's fairly standard "glass bottomed boat" config. Scary.

Hi PeterM I did think that initially myself but it seems a bit to detailed for a one off home build the Hull and stringers/deck are two separate sections top and bottom that join and form the hull/deck if you get my drift. these are both fiberglass and have been produces in a mold. this would seem to be a very expensive method for a one off build having to create 2 male and 2 female molds. Wouldn't a ply composite like gemini be but a much more sensible option.????
