    Models by Design made a pilot boat 42 , the hull is very similar - but its 42' at 1/12 scale not 31". Seem to be far less hulls on their site last time I checked about a year ago.

    Martin , "Maybe it is for this? LOL." dont think it quite fits the bill.................

    Been reading through old magazines being in enforced inactivity, and in one picture from 2015 November MB there appears to be a similar hull in lighter blue on the Models By Design stand , cant see the stern as its standing upside down upright behind other hulls, but it seems to have the keel and the rails in the right place. Know they used to make a large range of hulls - perhaps one of theirs ?

    Or something like this.
    If it looks right it probably is.

    Having had a good look at the lifeboats - does not seem to be one - nor does the Police boat . Quite a mystery - may well be a one off cabin cruiser like one of these two . (Neither quite fit the bill)

    hi there
    How's about a police launch or a pilot boat?

    if you google some photographs of the Southampton police boat - I believe the hull may be similar to this.

    I tend to think it isnt a lifeboat as lifeboats generally have a tunnel hull where the props are - to give them some protection - as has been mentioned apart from the new lifeboats which are waterjet.

    I think its definitely some form of workboat .

    Looks like the shape of a lifeboat?
    May the wind always be always where you want it .

    Could it be meant to have two props ? - Lifeboats usually have some prop protection and as the large keel extends a long way back it seems as if the rudder would have to hang outboard with a single prop which Lifeboats would not surely do. The triangular chine seems unusual though.
