Help Wanted $50/Hr

I need help installing a new tube set on an Avon Searider 5.4. I will pay $50 / hour cash, plus $100 / day to cover travel expenses. I will do all the prep work, and install the flange material in advance, so it should just be a 1 or 2 day job to attach the new tube set. I am in the Houston area. I could possibly rent a stotage unit closer to you to do the work in. PM me with questions and qualifications if interested.

Jeff

I'd lend you a hand if you were closer to Michigan! The last tube set I did on an 18 ft inflatable took about 30 hours total invested time between two persons.

There's guy in Santa Barbara,CA that documented his tube installation on his SR5.4.

That is good information. Thank you both. Right now it looks like I may have found a shop in Pensacola to do the work. I sent them some pics, and I'mm waiting on a response. I bought the tunes from Henshaw and they included all the attachment pieces. I can do all the prep work to the material and fiberglass, I just need som help making the final attachment. The rubbing strakes and outer protective material is already glued on so the tube set is very heavy. Also, the heat and humidity here make the adhesives tough to work with no matter how you mix or thin them.
