I'm interested in why we're all being told that certain work should not be attempted at home. Protecting business interests springs to mind.

None of it is a Black art, with a bit of practice and good advise an awful lot can be achieved at home without resorting to paying an hourly rate for somebody else to do it.

I thought that's what this forum was all about

Plainly in agreement, you should always save cash when possible, the point is that repairing a sib is much friendly, lots of info. Modifying a sib into a rib is other story..

Happy Boating

Special tool also available on eBay!

I've read this about three times, am I missing something here, what has this got to do with making a sib into a rib?

Not true, Leafield C7's don't leak wit the cap off.

All the valves on my Ocean are airtight - until you fit the outer caps

With the caps off they are fine.

I think they are C7s
