Humber RIB identification please

Hi folks, I am thinking of taking on board a project which is a small Humber RIB fitted with a 30hp outboard. It is essentially sound but will require a fair bit of TLC. I am trying to identify the model and age. The small plate on the inside of the transom has the following markings:

GB HUM 08791 B2 02

Other clues: The larger makers plate has a cat "C" design category, it has 2 grab loops on each side, single seat "stand up" type console, former sailing club rescue boat. I will upload a couple of photos next week. I don't have the length as the tubes were partly deflated but it would be around 4m or less.
Thanks for reading thus far, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Neil

If you go on the Humber site you will see all the range should be able to pick the model out I would say it's a 2002 but only a guess as last two digits on my boat was the year.

Hi Jeff, it think I have cracked it. Looks like an Assault 4.0M. Year of manufacture is handy, many thanks.

If you ring Humber for any info they are very helpful and have a the bits for a refurb if you require any, post some pics when you get sorted.
