1986 SR6 tubes?

I'm in Canada and have found a 1986 6m searider. Tubes are destroyed. I could have custom ones built but am curious what Avon would charge for new ones in the UK.

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Before you try avon, give one of the following companies a try first and ask about shipping costs. They come highly recommended from members of RIBnet.

All are also members on here too.

Thanks for the reply.

I just hoped that there may be an "off the shelf" tube available if the SR series hadn't changed much over the years. There are a couple of custom tube builders here that seem competitive with your examples.

Thanks

I've always wanted an SR6 Fantastic Boats

I believe that Avon buy there toobs in nowadays. I took an SR4 in for retubing to Avon and they said they had ordered the tubes from the suplier and they were arriving in a few days.

I saw Paul Tilley SR6 after he had refurbished and retoobed it and it was an excellent job. (TIDEL)

1986 SR6 Tubes

Henshaw Inflatable UK.

1/2 the price quoted by Avon...

We re-tubed two SR6's ourselves with Henshaw replacement collars. These really are "off-the-shelf" as Henshaw has the exact specs. for the SR6 collar. Henshaw also helped us consistently with he install with our DIY install via email, photos and HOW-TO's.

Have you made any progress on this?
