Tamar Inflatables in Lostwithiel retubed a 5.8 Narwhal (in Hypalon) for me a few years back. Did an absolutely cracking job at a very reasonable price. Would use them again without hesitation.

I missed the SW bit by OP but your statement above is still untrue

Daniel, for once I'm with Kerny, whilst the OP did say preferably Sth West you said "the whole tube industry is in the South West", whilst I'm not knocking any of the names you've mentioned as I'm sure they are all good at what they do, there are others tube builders / repairers around the country who also deserve not to be forgotten about, Steve has already mentioned Nth West Ribs and Inflatables who have an enviable reputation for service, but I'd also like to Add SIT, Specialised Inflatable Technology Ltd, of Leyland, they retubed my SR4 and did a great job for me:
