For those of you who donít know the story behind the tube saga, please feel free to contact the other Jono or me by PM or E-mail and we will give you what details that you feel you need.
What I will say is that the original fit was rushed through by the first supplier to meet an unrealistic delivery date and was delivered in the dark. Always a big mistake! When the problem of fit was discovered, much, much later, I would state that the original tube supplier reacted in a reasonable and professional manner. However I suggest that the first fitting knocked the customerís confidence and as he was not comfortable with the second fitting, he chose to have a set of tubes made elsewhere.
We, at PBS are still happy to use either Tube builder and currently have boats with both of them.

If you wish to purchase the tubes that Jono has, I would suggest that you contact him directly and he will be happy to do a deal with you, no doubt.
