Ocean Pro or no?

Hi
I've recently bought this RIB. advertised simply as a humber 6.3. Is it an ocean pro? Can anyone shed any light? Interestingly there are no signs of the "H" sticker or Humber name. No transom plate, or plate anywhere. It's a good boat though, maybe a bit under powered with the 75, but fine for this year. The beam is 2.34 also, so did anyone else make RIBS with these exacting Ocean pro dimensions?
thanks in advance

from the pic its not an ocean pro, more spray rails giving a bit of a stepped effect to the bow on a pro.

Bow shape and spray rails look like a Northcraft Seasport, but I didn't think they made these in 6.3m? Unconventional grab handle placement for a Northcraft, but these could have been retro-fitted.

Doesn't look like a Humber.

Is it actually 6.3m? It may be 6m.

Thanks for the input so far, I have re looked at Ocean pro pics and agree with you. So a bit of a mystery then.
I fitted the grab handles, the tubes were "naked" apart form the anchor line protector.
I am going to measure length again this morning

Not all humbers carried the big "H"..... Delta fitted them out for Offshore work waaaaay back in the day. Mine is one of them, and there's no trace of a big "H" having ever been on the toobs, but then I suspect Delta at the time didn't want someone else's logo on the hull...

Having said that, I do agree the bow doesn't look right for a "wide" O-pro - it's too sweeping, the O- pro is a bit steeper. (although I realise that could just be the angle of the photo......)
