Bloody insurance companies...
I am confident it wil be dealt with. You have to be the loss adjustors best friend when he turns up - he will be the one telling the insurer what he thinks should happen . So if its a well loved RIB and he can see that he is far more liekely to OK the re tube and everyone is a winner ! You get nice shiny new tubes , someone gets the work to do it & all it costs is you excess - but check even if that applies as some policies wont if the boat is in its normal place of storage ( again read your wording to check 1st ).
One to consider if its retubed .....its worth more money ! so change the insurance after to account for the new value .
Not the idea of 'insurance' but 'could' be a nice outcome all the same ...
If its retubed you can also pay for any 'extra' bits yourself (wear patches etc)to suit while its in & have them done at the same time to match etc - again a possible benefit for you ... but dont mention that to the loss adjustor !
