Why don't you inflate the tubes slightly to stop it moving about??? Don't over do it though - you may pop the container!!!

The reason we did not inflate the tubes was to get it really tightly tied down, its crancked to the cradle pretty hard so it sould not go anywhere and then ofcource to the container. i hope the guys at the Docks dont going doing loop-di-loops with my container, they are complete nuters on the forklifts.

no i forgot to give him water but he has loads of stainless cleaner and rags!

Not a good idea in fact I would say you want to make sure that the tubes are not touching the sides AT ALL.

The reason for this is that on large cargo boats the engine vibrations and ship movement can and will cause an unbelievable amount of chafing on a long journey. I'm involved in importing vehicles to this part of the world, and they used to be shipped with general cargo rather than in containers. If the cargo moved at all, even the lightest thing leaning gently against a vehicle (a roll of lightweight loft insulation for example) would chafe right through the paint to bare metal or make a massive impression in plastic trim. I'd guess a RIB tube will chafe through in no time at all if its rubbing on the side of the container at all.

That has to be a about the dumbest thing you ever posted Codders.
Please post two photos of yourself with Landie in background. One face on, the other profile. This will give us all an opportunity to pin them up and throw darts.
Cheers, T.

There is a much better reason and a lesson to all... always ship in container with tubes deflated when ex UK. As the ship passes the equator etc it gets very hot in that container (especially if you are stowed up high) and partially deflated tupes will expand against the lashing points and grubby container sides.

i was happy with the way my rib went in the container the tubes are flat and have carpet where all the tie downs are so as not to mark. but lets not forget they also like RHP have insurance so i hope my rib comes out in perfect condition. i have also requested to be center packed but who knows.

who do you ship with? this container is clean you could eat your food of it and to new zealand i thought it would be at the bottom till sigapore and them get moved to the top from there to NZ

Mat i will be in contact soon i have a few people who can pass some work your way ill give you ABN Amro numbers they are back soon
