I think it's the old HFM marine Ocean / Offshore support boat.

I think this might be the Wimpey Seahorse, can't remember right now who produced the hull, but it'll come to me !

I have been watching this model on ebay and could arrange my friend to pick it up and keep it until I get back to the mainland, it seems strange that chrisholley has another photo of the same model that is not posted on ebay ?
