Indeed...

....one of the guy's who worked for me did go off to join Mr Tilley, and it was 'round about the time that Mr Tilley started doing the tubes for Pro-sport again.

The engine box is now sealed but looks no different to how it was produced. I have fitted a snorkel for the air intake. Although the box is not fully watertight is better than it was. I like the low engine box (I keep my wetline tender on it) but it did give problems in a bad sea.

looks like i have upset ribraff , he is quite right ribeye moved their production to south africa for cheapness of manufacture whilst i was in charge of the production we used such people as steve davis for his moulding knowledge and andy clarke for his rigging knowledge as i do not profess to be knowledgeable enough about either but could manage production with their help . i would not want to give reasons as to why prosport changed tube manufacturer jason is the person to ask !!!

It's interesting what you learn on RIBnet. If i've followed this correctly the early ProSport tubes were made by Olmnec? I've seen Olmnec tubes and been impressed, i've also heard good things about their work. At some point i beleive they have / did make Osprey tubes?
