Tim, Not Sure about this particular boat, but i got a quote from humber a few years back to re-tube a 5.5 metre Humber and it was 1400+vat for new tubes fitted. I ended up patching up the tubes and selling the boat on for my current 7.5 Tornado but it might give you a rough idea of cost. Also a friend of mine used Eurocraft to re-tube his Ribcraft 5.8 and was very pleased with quality of job and the price. Hope this helps

Regards

Robbie

I've also spoken to Paul Tilley (thanks Paul) and I'm going to leave it where it is. Thanks to Robbie too.

Port side deck looks to have significant damage. Whatever became of it's original tubes? I thought Tornado used polyurethane tubes, which (according to some) are supposed to be the ultimate in durability.
