re tube for a Force 4 aluminium rib

We have a Force 4 RIB. Model number F.RIB 3400 from New Zealand.

We need to purchase replacement tubes. Does anybody know who manufactures these?

Our research shows that Force 4 appear to have gone out of business.

Any tube manufacturer can do it.


A quick google shows Explorer Inflatables as a possibility, or you could possibly get a set made over here and shipped if any tube manufacturers have a pattern.

Thanks for this info. Unfortunately we are in Grenada, West Indies, and can't find a tubing manufacturer here.

we would require a firm who already has the pattern to make the tubes and ship them here

Have you got a pic of it? It might be the same as another one over here.

You may find it's cheaper to replace it given the cost of tubes in the US though.
