I have Olmec tubes on my Prosport (in its 4 th year now) with no problems with the tubes or the rib. Just the engine, and that was sorted under warranty. Henshaws I have heard mixed reports, some good and some bad and if the tubes are bad they are very bad. But I have no first hand experience of them.

In the north Euromarine (or is it Eurocraft) seem to have a good name.

A friends 5.4 SR was re-tubed by Olmec about 3 years ago to an excellent standard with no issues that I know of so far.

Most of the big makers use Henshaws and they are very good. Paul Tilley is a true craftsman and his tubes are excellent.

Absolutely, Chris at Henshaws repaired a tear in the rear cone similar to BogMonsters problems in August for us. You can't even see the repair. Price was good and quick turn around given the time of year, excellent service

Oh how I wish I lived within trailer distance of Messrs Tilley or Henshaw...
