Hi,

Last year Olmec quoted me £2500 for a 4m Searider. I didn,t go in to specifics with extra straking, handholds etc. But that might give you some idea.

For me it probably isn't worth it.

Regards Nick R.

I think a mistake has been made here as we would not quote £2500 for retubing a 4mtr sea-rider.

Ribraff,

I thought it was a mistake too. Far too much for a little Searider. Did they quote wrong.

How much would it be now then.

Regards Nick R.

Olmec quoted me just over £1600 for my 5.4m Searider.

Sorry to raise this topic again,

But a friend asked me to get a price to retube his 4 Meter Searider.

My first return quote is from a company in Devon. Cost is £1800 ex works not including VAT.

Personally I think that is a lot of money. Anyone got better quotes.

Trouble as well is that all the retubed Seariders I have seen don't quite look right anymore.

Anybody had it done and managed to retain the look of the original Searider. Surely somebody must do it.

I was thinking along those lines but I imagine Avon, A large multinational company, would not be interested in carrying out such repairs.

Indeed you can't get RRP's for any RIB from Avon. Only the dealers.

Also I had another RIB repaired under guarantee by Avon last year and they insisted it be carried out by a small yard in the New Forest.

I was hoping that because it was a large firm that they would pick it up on a truck, take it back to wales, repair it, and then return it. More fool me.

Avon seem only geared towards initial builds. And personally I don't think I would ever buy a Avon leisure RIB from the latest range.

Their commercial/Industry/Military RIBS seem far superior to their Leisure range.
