Someone good to repair tubes on a Zodiac, Shropshire

Hi,

We've got a zodiac SIB with hypalon tubes. There is a leak on the seam at the stern "cone end" of the tube took it to be repaired, but the company we used did a terrible bodge job. Can anyone recommend someone to repair our boat?

I'm prepared to travel to get a good job done.

Thanks

Bert

Think its ex Eurocraft employees who setup, they do some pretty impressive stuff.

Are you sure? There are some around but most are made from Zodiac's "Strongan Duotex" PVC. Might be worth double checking.

Hi John,

yes it IS 20 years old before Zodiac started using PVC, apart from the bodged repair in good condition.
