What is this?

Is this what I think it is? The console looks remarkably like a ranger and the hard nose...? The only little point is the bit of GRP just under the nose that ends just aft of where I would expect the spray rails to begin. Just like the little thing on a revenger.

The pic of the Discovery console is useless.
I presume the 7m VM in log flume blue must be Roy's new ride. I think he's had those tapered tubes fitted back to front.

All depends what you think it is, I think its a RIB but I could be wrong and it could be a figment of my imagination.
