Who made my Rib???

Hello all,

I need some help...

I need to know what make my rib is? May sound silly but i bought it at a good price with a nice 115 four stroke yammy on. Now im considering getting shot but i have no idea what make it is. It has no names or markings on the hull at all (unless you can tell me where to look! The only markings on the tubes are at the rear end and its just a silouet of a yellow fish with a yellow squiggle underneath??

Can anyone point me in the right direction??

Cheers

P.S. Please see the image attached ...

These are the pics i have of the boat... Its a four stroke 115 yammy. Dont no the age.
The hull is pretty tidy and the tubes are good. Trailer is good.
None of the instuments work so it does need some time spent on it...?

on those models it had a s/s stamped plate screwed to the transom, easy to be taken off. they may have a molded number in the hull on the transom. And the engine just call your Yam dealer with the engine number.

That's an early 625, these were made at the factory in the UK, Hypalon tubes and the original hull. At this point they only manufactured the 625 and 725 models, narrow beam, i think it was derived from the Vector/ Pete Kidd. The 725 had a stepped transom and was a bit of a handful. They later went on to adjust the molds and manufacture went to SA. I reckon this is circa 99/00.
