Most likely Orca 866, but it could be 828 also.

I don't have any experience with the Waverider, but their SIBs are incredibly well built.

I bought one a few weeks ago.
The tubes are Hypalon, I would say around 1100 grade,
sadly mine had suffered some abuse, and were
beyond economical repair. Currently the boat is being retubed.
The rest of the boat looks bombproof, especially like the full length
aluminium keel guard and substantial keel.
Are you buying one ? or do you own one?
