) Tube repairs (everybody has probably guessed that...)
2) GRP repairs
3) Outboard motor repairs or maintenance

So Stephen, what did happen to your RIb?? ( without having to find it on postings). I last read that it was a disaster, hull had cracked in two, and the driver had been carted off to lunatic asylum??

I escaped!

The tube issues are still ongoing though at the moment I have it in a bodged but usable condition and I have a workable plan for repair which will cost me a fair bit, I'm just waiting on something else at the moment to see what happens ... not going to say anything on here yet.

The gelcoat damage was repaired ages ago with some magic military gunge I "acquired" unfortunately it is green instead of orange but fixed the problem nicely.

Nothing has gone wrong with it for 2 weeks now!
