Repair a nasty scratch

Thanks for that YOYO; I thought that there had to be someone down that way who would be good with repairs so I'll keep them in mind if I can't find anything a bit closer.

In the mean time I've also got a lead on someone based in Nantwich who I'll track down and have a conversation with. I'll let everyone know how it goes

Fair enough if you don't have any DIY ability at all, then it's best to leave it to the professionals. But IMHO maintaining a RIB yourself is very rewarding and all part of the experience

Hope you get it sorted.

Nasty Scratch

Thanks Andy; appreciate your input and no doubt I'll give the DIY a go if I keep on being crap at launch and recovery! Took the boat over to a yard near Nantwich this evening so we'll see how it goes...

Cheers
