Bit older than I thought (owner thinks 2000) but looks ok to me and having been out in it this morning the Grin Factor is certainly there
To tell the age, if it's newer than 1998 it should have a 14 digit hull identification number. The last 4 digits give you the date of manufacture and model year thus:
GB AAA BBBBB CDEE
GB is the country code
AAA is the manufacturers code
BBBBB is the boatbuilders serial number for the boat. Can be letters and numbers
C is the month of manufacture - A=January, B=February etc
D is the year of manufacture 9 would be 1999, 2 would be 2002 etc
EE is the model year 99 = 1999, 03 2002etc.
However this only applies to vessels sold or put into service within the EU since 16th June 1998.
It does not apply to commercial craft and I don't think it applies to the Falkland Islands.
RIB manufacturers were notoriously poor at complying with this regulation when it came in.
