Glad you found a route to repair.

Tell Guy that John Yasaki in California says "Hi".

update

Last week I took my Zodiac Cherokee to Polaris and the "long and the short" of it is that they are going to re-tube it using Hypalon. They are going to use the job as a "fill in '' over the winter and it's to be ready for pick-up in February/08. I've attached a photo of my 3.5 meter Polaris which I enjoy but is not big enough for diving.

Retubing quotes

I checked with Dave Berry of www.manta-inflatables.com and his quote was "about $5500." with a $250. rigging fee.
The quote from Polaris was in the same "ball park". All these quotes are for a bare RIB, should consoles, motors, etc need to be removed the cost goes up accordingly. Your cost would be based on what has to be done in order to install new tubes on your RIB.

Cherokee

Thank you. I think I will just patch my boat for now until no other choice. I was curious. Spending close to 6 G will be a last resort for me. Cheers!

Before Photo's

Went to Polaris, to take some measurements, and Photo's of the work done to date. I decided I should post a few "before" photo's first and post progress photo's second. I've enclosed 4 "before" photo's... Rib being delivered .. Clean & deflated .. and 2 views of it inflated before all the air escaped !
