No self tappers

Codprawn,

You could not have been looking too closely!

I did not say Paul Tilley did not make the tubes I said he has not been doing it for long

are you `Jon Fuller having a larf?

I sincerely hope this boat isn't a Prosport because the finish was appalling. Martin, Paul and I were shocked to see the boat on its trailer close up 2 weeks ago. The tubes were falling off, transom cracking, console cheap and nasty as was the rest of the boats fitout. More worrying however was the hull had the same chines as a ring or balistic hull in that they were deaply scalloped. a copy? possibly but I am sure that Prosport would want to distance themselves from this boat.

Think it must be your strange version of inglish got me all confuessed.....

"Paul Tilley has not been making tubes for Prosport for a long time"

Means to me that he no longer does them!!!

As to the other remarks re fabric etc I believe that nearly all the makers use the same stuff - from Pennel Industries - so quality will be down to the tube maker themselves!!!

Maybe it isn't - not too sure on that one. Can't see their stickers on it - just stuck in some general shots of ribs from St Peter Port to show a large proportion are ProSports.
