I "inherited" a rib and I'm trying to figure out wat it is. Adventure 870

I in the transport and towing business and have been looking for another rib to build. I came across this boat so I took possession of it. It says adventure 870 but no other names. The hin number starts with VIC and its a 2006. Any info would help.

There's grass growing on the deck... now that's a project.

Looks like a substantial piece of kit. Pre-owned canner 870D here, etc. http://www.scanner-marine.com/en/tou...scanner-870-d/

Does anyone know what make this is????
Yes I know it's a project and I see the grass.. I got payed to haul it away so before I cut it up with a chain saw I'd like to know if it is worth fixing based on the brand. If its a shit brand boat it gets the ax!!! If its something decent I will rebuild it like I did my AB. Its been in the shade for 5 years and the tubes are holding air.
