Hi everyone.

We're trying to find a US company that can make good quality hypalon inflatable tubes from CAD drawings.

Any contact details or suggestions would be most welcome.

You might actually find it cheaper to get a set made over here in the UK and shipped to you.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?

So many options in the UK. My quotes from the UK were cheaper than the US (though not cheap!).

hypalon tubesets

Couple of places down in Florida.

Start with Alamar Boat Solutions.
Head guy is Carlos. The company consists of 4 or 5 old Nautica International tube employess that have gone out on there own since Nautica folded years back. Give them a call they have built tubes for us in the past. They just did one from scratch last week for a small jet tender we brought to market. Not a spot of glue anywhere and flawless...A little higher priced than a few other in that south florida market but very professional. Return phone calls and emails right away.

pic attached of what they just finished.
