Name that Rib

Anyone out in Rib land can tell what or who makes this RIb.

I am hoping I may have found a diamond in the rough here.

Sorry for the pics they are not the best.

Lol, I am hoping the tubes are ok and a little elbow grease will bring them back to life. But I can’t find much on the model of the boat.

Really I am trying to decide if it’s worth the effort.

To me it looks like Avon Searider

Unfortunately this is the only picture I can get because the boat is in storage for the winter.

Any rib in a photo that bad looks like a sea rider.......

You need to go see it in daylight and take loads of photos from all angles and close ups as well as over shots and of any numbers or plates to even have half a chance. Are the tubes even original?

Dunno if itís the angle, but the cone ends look odd/distinctive.

Interesting guy Paul Brot. Sounds like a quality builder. If you believe Wikipedia he actually invented the RHIB
