In the worst case you may have a leak under a rubbing strake or worse where the tube glues to the hull this could mean a trip to your nearest tuber to see if they can repair them

Ribshop are near to you aren't they?

Well I guess I could apart from the A Frame might get in teh way a little might it? I'll see what's what down at the ECA but could be a little difficult on that one, I might phone up Robshop for a bit of advice on this one.
