Is this an ex RNLI rib for sale

https://www.gumtree.com/p/boats-kaya...tre/1180485842

I found the above on gumtree and wondered if this is a genuine ex RNLI boat. It has raider on the tubes and the seller states it is a raider class boat. Any views please?

RIBase
Some people think anything with tubes that looks like a rescue boat is ex rnli... The RNLI did use mariner 40's like that, but shortshaft and tiller control, maybe someone's mentioned that to him, and that led him to believe that it is.

Nothing on the boat looks like it was ever built for the rnli and never heard of a raider class.

Raider ribs were a rib manufacturer about 25 years ago, which matches the age of the engines. Thats what this boat is.

Bit pricey for a RIB with two manual start, manual tilt and smelly two strokes on the back.

The MOD , CG also used those OBMs. I cant see in the picture, have the OBMs got any rubber grommets, in the BTM tray port side? have the holes been filled and painted over? If not then they are not ex RNLI or MOD.

I owned a raider rib a couple of years ago they were built by ribcraft and fitted out by ribs Marine on the south coast. Im not sure if they were ribcraft hull's or ribs had their own moulds but they used a lot of out hill seats and consoles
Build quality was pretty good. I doubt it will be 25 years old though mine was about 12yo
The partnership didn't seem to last very long
