new tubes

Hi,

We need to get our old (1992) Tornado 5,5mtr re-tubed this winter and wonder if members can give recommendations and approx. costs.

The Tornados are made out of PU but can we have it re-tubed in Hyperlon and would this be better?

Many thanks Davej

+1 for Rodella - they have done several bits of work for me and I have seen some of their re-tube projects. Based in Poole, so also a bit more local for me than the West Coast guys
