Considering Paul Tilley has actually has been building tubes for a living for longer than I care to remember and after personally seeing the superb quality of his work first hand, I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss his advice.

For the avoidance of any doubt, no it doesn't. There are few people better placed than Paul to give advice about tube repairs.

Glad you got a good result though

It's the casual bystanders' irony radar that I wasn't confident about!

Absolutely, that's the general idea! Given I spend so much time sailing, I want to see how much I use the RIB first over a couple of years before springing for a retube. Whilst worn on the top in places, the undersides are great, and the tubes hold air perfectly, so does seem like a bit of a shame to just bin them for the relatively light use they get.

And if I did a retube, would probably change the deck layout and seating, and thus probably change the deck itself (as it isn't sealed underneath). By the time I started down that line I can't see the end...!

But I still have some lengths of the M-Tec left, so will definitely be taking Paul T's advice and putting protection on some smaller areas when I get some time and the weather is good.
