USCG RIB washes up in Ireland

Is this really a USCG RIB? I don't see any markings on the tubes...

Seems it's been ID'd as a USA gunnery target remote boat.

I wouldn't be surprised, I've seen all sorts of stuff from the US and Canada washed up on the beaches of the Scottish outer islands.

I still wouldn't be surprised if Alan Priddy's boat turned up one day!

Not a scratch - there's 15 small fishing boats missing from the same area though.
