Hello and looking for tubes

Hi , my first post and I'm looking to see if anyone has for sale a set of tubes for an Avon Searider 5.4m ? or a supply and fit if the price is right.

I bought the boat as a non runner with a Suzuki DF70 engine , which I now have running perfectly ( £20 electric fuel pump and cleaned injectors ......after MANY hours of internet researching and a quote of £700 !! )

I was going to sell it but now the summers coming ...................you know how it is .

So if any has or can put me in touch with the correct people / products please get in touch.

Cheers

Marco

Welcome to RIBnet. There are quite a number of re-tubers in the UK - north and south. If they are not trade members of ribnet then they are prohibited from advertising their services on this thread. However, members can recommend anyone they like. I'm aware of a few but have used none, although I own a lovely set of Henshaws tubes.

Rodella RIBs

Barnett manufacture RIBs - so they should be able to do anything. I'm not sure if they offer re-tube services?

They do, and helpfully they list their prices. They are not the cheapest, although cheap is not always best anyway.

Thanks for the reply's , Ive made a few calls and am getting quoted in the region of £4k to £4.2k ?

More than I was hoping to pay , does this sound about right form experience to those of you who have taken the plunge ?

Hey Marco - did you not like the answers we gave you yesterday?

Please don't double post on the forum - it gives me extra work to do and I get cranky...

OK then - crankier!
