Now, if I have to tell you again there will be trouble!

now that could come in useful for a little opportunity i have, trouble is i would suspect that avon will be at the high end of the market regarding pricing but no doubt they would do a very good job, would be interesting to get comparative quotations

cool

I asked for a quote for a 4m Searider and it was around £1100.
The only stipulation was that the work would only be carried out subject to their engineer surveying the hull first to ensure that it was safe to retube.
I'd also asked about supplying tubes only for fitting elsewhere and they politely declined saying that they felt this was not safe..........oh hum.

Just wish I hadn't deleted the emails now cos I could have given you the contact name and number


Ps: Codders, I only quoted your response because it was the easiest

Blimey I'm a scally wagg.........

.......because my immediate thought was "it'll cost nothing" Why, simple - my insurance wold cover it. "oooppps, sorry Mr Insurance Co someone has just taken a knife to my tubes/I reversed into a barbwire fence/a truck reversed into me"........

However, from the stance of I wish to buy your RIB but "hey your tubes need replacing and I want you to know a good proportion of that of your asking price" then, get the most expensive qoute you can get your hands on !

For a 5.4m. Please tell us more.

The only thing I have priced from Avon is their strake for the 5.4 m and thats £17+ per metre. They must be desperate. In fact we'll alll have it done at that price.

can you please confirm a 5.4m searider retubed for 2 grand by Avon.....

That is a cracking price.

Blimey!!! A retube from Avon would be cracking!

In all seriousness, I have to agree with Biggles, I can instantly spot
a retubed Avon Searider as they just don't look the same as before ( at least I think I can, given photos ).
Tubes look totally different. Arrrr...

I would think if one of the aftermarket tube makers can show that they can
retube an Avon Searider to look like the original than they'd get quite a bit of
business given there seem to be a TON of them around. And most of them
seem to only need a retube to look proper again. Can you say niche niche market?

Ahh I'm just daydreaming. I'm not quite in the market for new tubes just yet. But I will definitely in the future. I'm not gonna sell my 2 seariders thats for sure.
