Thanks Max.

I have a Zodiac 10 footer YachtLine, guessing 1990's with GRP hull.

I want to skip all of the re-gluing drama and just glass sponsons (tubes) onto

the hull full stop. Can't find any "how tos" though I have seen folks mentioning it.

Bob

OfficeBob its not clear what you mean. a. How to attach the sponson to your hull? B. Or how the 'replace' your squidgy sponson with a fibreglass solid equivalent.

a. Depends on the sponson but you don't usually fibreglass it you usually glue it or attach to a bead.

B. You don't.

Menai Marine make a rib with fibreglass tubes, maybe worth emailing them for advice, although I'm guessing building from scratch is a but different to what you're trying to do

Thanks fellas....no I'm talking FRP/GRP full tube. No Inflatable. Now that I think about it, perhaps a cardboard Sonotube as plug. West System epoxied and through-bolted to hull. Alternatively, wonder if a guy could use the tubes off of an old Avon Hypalon. Cut the soft floor out. Its just I see a pattern with PVC tubes failing prematurely, new tubes costing way too much, and attempted refits sent to the dumpster. Clear as mud? BTW, I live 2 doors down from a fiberglass textile plant. Cheers
