x RNLI avon d560 adventure

hi all at ribnet,ive just bought an avon d560 x RNLI rib,it was hemsby inshore lifeboat until it came up under some boarding ladders on a swell and ripped the front port side tube and seriously bent the steering console,which i can repair as its alloy and i have an alloy welder ,ive looked on u tube at repairs to ribs and it doesn't look that difficult,has anyone got any experience with large repairs to tubes? ,looks like there's a thick skid pan on hull about 10mm thick which i dont thinks standard,its in orange fiberglass with grey tubes, im gona try a repair does anyone know who's the best to order tube material and glue from,i think its hypalon material but id have to send a small peace to supplier to make sure,i don't know what year it is or if there any good but it will be better than my last speedboat,as it was only 16ft and a solid ,ive wanted a rib for ages,should be able to stay out to sea longer and safer thanks.
