Well first things first, track down the owner and get to the business end of this.

Thanks all!

Looks like a nice boat. Have you managed to find a HIN number on it anywhere which will date it? I don't think it's that old. Those tubes should clean up nicely providing they hold air reasonably well. Fingers crossed you get it for a good price.

In my rush to not get shot at or get bit by a Rottweiler I forgot to take a picture of the ID plate. I plan on another mission inside the fence next week.

I'm mostly worried about the wide open seam in this picture.

Wow. I went into The Inflatable Boat Center in Portland today. I think they are our largest inflatable dealer/repair shop. I was informally quoted 18,000-21,000 dollars to retube an sr6.
I asked how much for labor only if I provide the brand new tubes (likely purchased and shipped from the UK). That would run 6,000-8000 dollars. That's just to install!
You know I think this type of thing is why ribs are not catching on faster.
Btw, they are retubing an sr5.4 with mechanical fasteners at a cost of $21,000 for a customer.

That's what I said. That's when he told me about the $18,000-$21,000 sr5 retube. Granted they were adding a bolt on system to attach with.

He's worked there for years and seems to run the operations of the place. Nice guy, but....

Those prices are awesome I have to move there, with a friend who installed 3 sr 5,4 tubes. That's making money btw you van buy mine 5,4 with new Suzuki df90 ark for $20000 engine still in crate.

So please on Paul for tubes and instructions and buy that beauty for a couple quid you can do it!!!

That's insane.

Definitely buy the hull and repair the tubes!
