Can anyone shed any light on a recent problem we have encountered with our rib. Its a 6.5m red bay that lies in oban on the west of Scotland and its about 5 years old.
We went up at the weekend and the starboard aft tube section was flat. On closer inspection the joint between the cone and the end of the tube had failed and air was escaping. We checked the other tube and it had the same problem, although hadnt failed at that time. A week later it had gone too!
We have been given conflicting advice - we have been told on one hand that it is just a simple re-glue and on the other hand that we need to replace the cones. Has anyone experienced a similar problem?
It seems a bit worrying that both cones have gone at the same time....
Ive tried to attach a picture but my comp doesnt seem to let me!!
Any thoughts would be appreciated
