I found a couple of posts on a chat/message board with the same ref no. U DRA/182. One just said UDRA/182 - John Watson, West Ella, Yeoman, bond for Anthony Brough of Hull, a mariner, Oct 1742.

The second had MISCELANEOUS DOCUMENTS FOR HULL AND THE EAST RIDING RECEIVED FROM THE BRITISH RECORDS ASSOCIATION Ref No: -U DRA/182 Bond in ?500: Anthony Brough of Hull, mariner, John Watson of West Ella, yeoman and Francis Brough of Hessle, yeoman to Henry Etherington, gent., sheriff of Hull Oct 1742. Description: For performance by Anthony Brough of offices of gaoler, sergeant at mace and bailiff: Witn. Charles Robinson jnr., Robt Jarratt.

Not sure if the first, even though it has the same reference number, corresponds with the second.

It looks like the bond was the pay Henry Etherington so Anthony Brough could be gaoler, sergeant of mac and bailiff. That doesn't make sense to me though.
