HYSUCAT RIB Purchase Downunder

I finally purchased my first rib.
I was a bit overwhelmed at how big it looks out of the water but luckily it just fits into my drive.
Will be taking it out tomorrow to familiarize myself with it.
I have a question about what to use to try and clean the Hypalon tubes.
Has some light brown stains which look a bit unsightly but not sure if they will come off.
Any suggestions?

I know what you mean by it looking big out of the water. I too was shocked when I saw mine on a trailer. I had serious doubts it would fit on the drive.

Ive only used soap and water to clean the tubes. Im sure others will let you know. But perhaps you can try it first on a small unseen area just to make sure it works without damaging them.

Nice boat!

Do a search on cleaning hypalon and you will see lots of ideas. Not sure we have most of the products listed down under but Fairy Power Spray seems to be the main choice.

I just purchased from Ribshop on here what they recommended. With shipping to Australia it wasn't cheap, but it works. One thing they don't have on the instructions is to use their spray on a dry boat, once the tubes have water on them, the product doesn't seem to work very well.

Nice boat. Be interested to hear how useable the console forward seats are.

I am in Australia as well, also purchased the same product and also don't have instructions on how to best use it. It starts working well, then doesn't work anymore. I am pretty sure it is because I don't have the correct technique. Please help help.

You are a very lucky man. and continued good luck with the new boat.

You'll adjustto the size quickly. Re the brown stains - after a few good runs in the water, you're eyes wont notice the stains any more!!!
