From this angle it looks like a Destroyer.
Any other pics?

Which Humber

Don't think destroyer has more than one spray rail. I think that has two. Bit pointy as well. Looks like an assault to me.

I would say that's not a Humber at all. A Northcraft perhaps?

RIBase
I would bet on Assault - Thought the destroyer has a higher bow

Certainly not a Destroyer. Might not be Humber. I don't suppose there's a builders plate left on it?

Humber choice

Trust me, I've had 2 Destroyers. Fantastic sea boat, superb hull in heavy seas. If I were going for a 5 or 6 ft Rib, I'd have another Destroyer.
Watch out for rot in the deck ply, around screw holes, etc. This can be a weakness in both models.

But is it a Humber?
