My boat has come away at the seams

While on a day on the beach in august, it was hot and my quicksilver burst at the seams, im guessing i had it over inflated, is there any business in yorkshire that can fix?

I wonder what length of seam needs repairing? Proper pro repairs to an "as new" standard are expensive. In truth if this is something like a 3.1/3.4m Quicksilver it might be better/cheaper to look at buying a used one at winter prices.

Its Quicksilver 2.4.

I found a website that pick the boat up and fix it and return it, i sent them pics and they have quoted a very reasonable price.

So going to give it a go...

What's the website? It's worth checking if someone here has used it before.

>>>i sent them pics and they have quoted a very reasonable price.

30... 50... 100.. 150??

I wonder as one of these brand new is only 400 and this time of year you would be able to but a great condition used one for 150-200.

I would want to pay less than half that for the repair and know they were to an as-new standard before considering it.... in fact for my personal choice I'd scrap it and buy one that hadn't suffered the "burst" stress.

Edit: Is the company RibRight in Chelmsford?

This is one of the reasons I'd like good quality relief valves on my Honwave 3.5 but North Yorkshire's not exactly over-run with rib/sib repairers !!

Where's the reasonably priced outfit ?

It would be really interesting for those who might want to use these guys in the future if you had any before/after images so we could see what length of seam they will do for 40.

Picking it up, repairing it, valeting (!?) returning it to you all for 40? Sound too good to be true...
