New tubes for Prestige catmaran rib

Hi folks
New to this forum

I am about to examine a hull of what should be a 5.2 m Prestige catmaran RIB(south african boat). Its tubes were exploded and I wanna check cost for ordering new tubes to see if it is worth buying the hull with the boat registrations.

Do you have any idea who could be making such tubes? (without need to have the hull in front of him-as i am overseas far).

Would appreciate your help.

Sameh

For some reason catamaran RIBs have never been very popular anywhere other than South Africa, so you might not find much expertise here. You could try Henshaw Inflatables though, they have probably made tubes for more types of RIBs than any other company.

Have you tried contacting Prestige?

Sameh, do you still have the old burst tubes? I think most of the specialists could make new ones using damaged ones as a template.

Got you
Contacted some company but no reply yet. Will have to think well about whole thing if it is worth it compared buying complete RIB..
