Capstan on a RIB?

Spotted this beast in the moorings at Falmouth yesterday, all aluminium, Caterpillar diesels through Twin Hamilton Jets, didn`t get to see it going anywhere. Looks like a CJ electric capstan on the "fantail"?
A little Google tells me its a 15m Odyn-class by Ocean Dynamics.

I think it might be the RNLIs:

When I was at Poole they was a big feck off Ocean Dynamics which the RNLI had used when looking for a replacement for the Mersey.
I think it was used to assess how jets would operate in verying conditions.

She was missing her sponsons when I was down there last.....I seem to remember being told that they also used her as the test rig when looking at shock absorbing seats etc....Pretty sure our senior helm went down there and did some R&D stuff using her too.

Alright fella, I'm back down Pembroke on the 23rd, am down a while so give me a shout if your about?
I'm only a 5 min walk from Pembroke Dock, I'll have to have a nosey round Mustangs place, trouble is it involves walking past the pub! Not sure about the tubes?

It never fails to amaze my why the RNLI keep feeling the need to reinvent the wheel.

They do many things brilliantly, but surely the logical thing to do is rather than create / evaluate / redefine / test / build a new waterjet boat, simply use their current close links with the Dutch and develop their classes.

Not intended to have a go at the RNLI, but it does puzzle me....
