I can highly recommend Giovanni at Rodella Ribs. He did some wonderful remedial work on my pretty worn out tubes on the Ribtec last year, to keep them going for a bit longer before a full retube.

Still going very strong a year later, currently on the return of a Poole to Penzance to Poole trip over the bank holiday weekend.

Will certainly be revisiting Giovanni when I can't eek any more life out of the current tubes!

Had my Scorpion re-tubed by ribshop this spring. Tubes were built by Henshaws and fitted by ribshop.

Bizarre thing was that it was cheaper for ribshop to do the job than for me to take the boat direct to Henshaws.

I've had some superb work done by Scott at RibRepair in the New Forest as well a couple of years ago. Wouldn't hesitate to use him again, but have now found Giovanni just up the road in Poole which for me is so much more convenient being only a 10 min tow away.
