+1 on this. I have a 5.4 and my local Avon / Zodiac dealer has told me that it would be so expensive to retube it that I might as well buy a new one. I mentioned doing it myself and they said it is very hard to get the tube on straight. I am new to ribs and this may be true. It would be interesting to hear from some other people regaring this, whether they are professionals or DIY types.

I am a DIY
It was a bit daunting at first but I did put the tubes on my 7.7m rib, on my own. Planning, preparation the instructions from Chris at Henshaws helped.

I figured this would be the case. I'm glad it is. My tubes still have a few years on them but I always like to know what my options are in advance. Thanks for the information guys.
