Fade

You could always put wear patches going over the tops of the tube, we were out playing on Mr Manning's humber, orange tubes with blue wear patches covering all of the top of the tube, i believe this was done when the boat was new.

I suppose the fase would only matter if you were going to sell it, as a boat to buy and keep it seems ok.

They used to sell this stuff for dyeing vinyl, would this not work, or even taking the top faded bit off with some sort of solvent like tcut on a car??

Anyways, i havent got 10 large so it doesnt matter really lol!

Considering that you're a tube builder, your levels of observation leave a lot to be desired. The tubes are blue with orange wear patches. Your missus is a better boat driver than you as well.

Hi folks

If you looks at the elphant trunk shown in the pic taken from the rear.

Why is the elephants trunk bright yellow and not faded while the tubes are well faded ?.

Even so it may be a good buy as even if it needs some work may be worth it.

Regards Gary

If I was selling a boat like this and I was genuine (which I do feel this one is), and a clique of folk who know absolutely nothing about it started making comments based on little more that nothing, I'd be really fekkin pissed.

If you feel it's genuine, the chances are anyone else reading the thread would come to the same conclusion
