Sea Bowld RIB

I just acquired a 9ft rigid inflatable by trade. The brand name on it is Sea Bowld. I'm having a difficult time finding any information on these. Can anyone tell me where/when these were made; their quality, any problems?

Also, I noticed that above the primary drain hole in the transom, there is another drain plug just below - as if the fiberglass hull is actually hollow. Does this mean that this boat is water ballasted, or is it just for draining any water that might intrude into the hull?

Never heard of it. Certainly didn't originate from this side of the pond. Are you sure that is the manufacturers name and not the boat name?

The lower bung is for draining water out of the inside of the hull, it will always find a way in no matter how hard you try to stop it.
