Zodiac 470 replacement tubes needed

Anyone know where I can get replacement tubes for a 1991-96 Zodiac 470 Pro?
I think the new Pro 500 might work as well.
Any help would be appreciated.

Your best bet is to contact a Zodiac dealer in California. The old Zodiac 470 is different from the Zodiac Pro 9 man (4.7m), then renamed Pro 500. The lace cuff at the bow now uses a webbing strap that connects to the U bolt. These are either Zodiac dealers or authorised repair centres. Pretty sure you should be able to get the older style tubes.

Zodiac tubes

I have a 98 470 Pro II. It had the tubes replaced at the beginning of 2010. The tubes are very similar to the first picture in the original posting and work fine. On that boat the tubes are retained at the bow with screws and washers through the tube skirt. At the bow is no visible external attachment to the hull or the bow ring (like shown in the second picture). At the stern there are two flaps that are screwed to the top of the transom.

The tubes I have also have a fiberglass piece bonded to the tubes that bow which has a cleat and a bow roller.

The tubes were obtained and installed be Annapolis Inflatables. The proprietor posts here as KiwiBoyd. Perhaps he can help you.

There are slight differences in 470 tubes from model to model. I do think we have these in stock, charles will email you pictures to confirm.

Thanks Boyd

The ones you have are pretty close but I wanted to stay away from white tubes. I may end up with them anyway. Spring is right around the corner and I am anxious to get out on the water. Anybody have any other colors? I would love to get my hands on some hypalon tubes but thats just wishful thinking!
