Were the tubes that bad Jeff? They looked ok to me.
Are you just having new tubes or other work done too?

Just new tubes ,,, they had suffered a bit from
A)overheating in Greece 11 years ago which created a (+) leaking seam ,,, been chasing for a long time
B) over zealous use of tfr and ribclean over the years
C) About 60 weeks over its 13 years in the heat and sun of Europe
D) careless close quarter use of a 150bar steam cleaner
E)Fat boys in dry suits and dive kit falling in and scrambling out
,,,, quite a lot of the surface had developed minute blisters ,,, air leak sources I guess. After about 4 weeks depending upon weather conditions, starboard side would deflate slightly and with one baffle clearly passing ,,,, all sb and bow followed suit
Thought it was time ....

,,, I can assure you, as a near Yorky/Jock cross, parting with readies did not come easy hohoho

,,, Tubes pretty much the same but with prv's this time plus a few wear reinforcement patches

All in all, they've not done too bad

A nice Xmas present for you.

Out of interest, how are your tubes attached?
