733 Tubes, Best offer

Used black Zodiac 733 Hurricane Tubes,
Taking best offer, must be out of my location within one week.

Fabric is good, the glue on the seams is breaking down and some seams are opening up.

"TOW BOAT US" is printed on the side with white paint.

You can patch that!

Even if their is a large section cut out you can patch that no issues especially if cut is in a single chamber.

You're the second person to say that which relieves a bit of anxiety from my mind. Unfortunately I have been at sea since the purchase and I purchased blind so I still dont know what I am up against.
From everything I have read on this forum and heard from its members Zodiac RIBS can be virtually resurrected from any state of neglect and decay so that also gives me hope.
Once I am Back on land I will do a complete assesment and write up with pictures. And will look foreward to as much experienced insight as possible.

I most likely will need new tubes, as I envision this for commericial use I'd imagine the Costies would ding me for having a 5 foot patch on the side?

Size does not matter.

The size of the patch should be of no consequence as the tubes are nothing but a series of patches. since they are made of various pieces from day one their is no loss of structure integrity if the repair is done correctly.

You will end up with a large patch that should extend a good 6-8 inches beyond the opening which should be cut so it is clean and symmetrical. it is also highly advised to have double sided patch on one of this size. if done correctly this should become the strongest part of your tube.

Just my 2c.

Why? Doubt they care whether it's a patch or original tube. By that logic any repaired hull would be frowned upon.
