Hi

If you don't mind me asking how much did it cost for re-tubing ?

Kernow yes its a ace hull. very smooth and gives a nice dry ride.
My only critisisum of the retube is that the tube to hull fix position.
Its slightly higher on the tubes so you see a ridge at the tube to hull joint where before it was alot smoother. If that makes sense. But took it out recently and its still a very nice ride for a almost 20 year old boat and the Mariner is its origional engine and still sounds sweet. :-)
