RIB Inner Tubes

4 PVC "Inner Tubes", 2 @ 2m + 2 @ 4m so suit 5-6m boat (approx).

Stored for some time but inflated today and all seams well. Will leave inflated to test!

These were supplied by "Gemini" (www.geminiindustries.co.uk) and came with a boat I had a few years ago. They worked well for a season before we retubed her. The previous owner also had a season with them.

2 of the the inner tubes had to be patched as water was getting into the bottom of the rear outer tubes and the pressure build up damaged the inner tubes. I dont beleive the other 2 are patched. But word of caution, make sure no holes under the water line when using these.

More info and measuring detial here:
http://www.geminiindustries.co.uk/in...s%20prices.htm

So in summary used, and patched, but may well get someone afloat for the spring while they save up for a retube.

Price new seams to be about 500.

Offered to RIBnet'ers for 100. Can courier at cost (say 20). I also have a PVC tube repair kit I will throw in FOC (unopened).

Inner tubes

Hi Do you still have those Inner tubes?? I have a 5m Tornado with 5inch split in its left rear tube. The split is a little under the water line, do you think these inner tubes would work??

They will get you out of trouble, yes.

Word of caution, we found with water getting into the rear of the tubes (from underneeth) it was either pressurising the inner tube or junk like sand and grit was getting in. Either way, that meant the inner tube needed a patch every few months.

Of the 4 I have, only 2 remained inflated for a week.
