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.
