Oh dear, this is going to cost me!

Well, I havent posted for a while, expanded the business just over 18 months ago and opportunities to play have been few and far between. Anyhoo, decided it was time to get my act together and dusted the old girl off over the weekend.
Last time I went out, which was towards the back end of last year, I noticed that there was a small leak in the tube under the rubbing strake, bit of a bummer but I could cope with it.
Scrubbed her down on saturday and went out to fuel up, on returning home saw that the tube was absolutely flat with a spit on the seam about 4 inches long smiling at me. Now it is repairable but to be honest the tubes have had their day so I'm going to go for a retube.
My problem is that if I can avoid it I don't want to drag the thing all the way across the country, does anybody have any knowledge of a retuber somewhere close to Pembrokeshire?

Yes, there's a chap called Chris over in Pembroke Dock. He does GRP production & repairs in a workshop behind the London Road 'shopping mall'. Chris used to work for Pembrokeshire Yachts and fitted tubesm, supplied by Henshaws (I think) to their own RIBS. If you could get a set of tubes made up by Tornado, Henshaws, Paul Tilley, Ribraff, Ribshop, etc, I'm sure Chris would fit them for you. PM me if you want his number.
