Hi looking at buying a rib from a friend that needs some repair work on the tubes think it has a few leaks, can anyone recommend a company in the Dorset/Hampshire area that's good. Cheers

I used Scott at Rib Repair just outside Lymington. He retubed a 6m rib for me. Reasonable cost and a good finish.

If you can go west you've good choice i would recommend ed @ ribtube (ribraf on here) as he's just done a good job on a 7m retube for me. He's in Dartmouth but very kindly collected my boat from Portsmouth so don't discount the idea.

Paul tiley is also down that way.

Aren't henshaws in Dorset?

Thank you for your replies, after doing some research and phoning around for quotes I decided to take my rib to Rodella Ribs in Poole. Very easy access to and from the workshop which for me as a newbie to trailer use was handy. Excellent service and pleased with the results. Looking forward to getting out on it!
