Too right, though I just opened the trunk and kept the power on
I was more concerned about one of the cruisers coming over "are you allright there?" followed by a big wash.

It looks horible and feels like the end of the world. But, after peeling about 4 layers off to get to the original seam, it was quite strait forward. Hardest part is the preperation. PS find a way to hold the seam open until the glue is dry.

I don't know what to say about the seam on your tubes but I cannot say enough about the Smart Tabs. Once you fix your tubes and install the Smart Tabs your boat will ride 100% better. Mark my word.

If ya got some money left after your holiday, I'd get Ocean RIBs to have a look at it. You were happy with the console weren't you?

To be honest Olly, you have quite a few bits and peices that are comming off/flapping around . Get em all checked out at the same time, or give it ago yourself. I have an angle grinder and a sanding disc to clean the old stuff off with.

Just a thought,
