That's torn it!

Hi All,

I've just completed my first year of sibbing with a honwave 3.8m. All the help and advice from this forum has helped make it a great first year.

BUT...

I've just put a 4inch tear in the tube.

Can anyone recommend a professional repairer as my DIY skills will involve me sinking slowly.

Many Thanks

Just in case you get excited and have a go yourself. I made a rough guide for large repairs. Depends on what your fabric is though.

I presume you want someone local? And the boat is in Derbyshire?

Your closest are probably Eurocraft or SIT, both in Leyland. Or it is possible the Northcraft or Humber, both in Hull, would fix it?

Thanks everyone,

I will take some photos this week end and email them to ribshop for a quote.
Failing that thanks polwart for some more local repairers.
