Is it 'Flippin Eck?

I visted a small town in north Devon which had a reasonably new small marina. On the quayside was a boat that looked remarkably like John Baker's multi-coloured Cougar 'Flippin Eck'.....am I correct or was it a similar boat?

That Cougar US1-38 had most of the deck cut out by Cougar who were using it as a base for an open sports project. The project didn't get finished, and to the best of my knowledge, the boat is now in Malta, at the yard of the European design thinktank, Chaudron Powerboats.

I was led to believe Chaudron had been renamed 'Splash' but I could be mistaken
