Zodiac pontoon numbers

I have a Zodiac 733 and suspect the pontoons are newer than the boat. The hull is 2003 but the pontoon has these numbers on it. Any ideas what these mean - see the photos.

Cheers

That plate is a Hull ID number; I'm not up on Zodiac numbers, so will defer to someone else on what it all means. I don't, however, think that is a standard way of marking tubes for serial number purposes; I'd suspect the previous owner stuck it on there. Does that number match your hull?

Tubes were manufactured December 2011.

This is a standard method of marking tubes on some commercial /ministry type tubes ,avons used to have glued on labels in the bows . I would agree they are newer 2011 tubes . It is very common to see Halmatic MOD ribs with tubes that do not match the age of the hull .

ThNks guys. This is ex navy, so makes sense. I think I saved heaps buying a boat with good tubes.
What would a new set set you back.

Probably 14-20,000 depending on the specific version.
