Repair recommendations?

Hi All, time to stop lurking and make my first post.

I've managed to rip the "D" ring out of the bow of my boat and wondered if anyone had any recommendations on somewhere to have it repaired. I'm based in Bristol so somewhere between here and the Solent would be great.

Thanks

Mike

You could try The RIB repair centre.

They're based with the Gemini bunch at Saxon Wharf in Southampton at the moment.

Number is 02380 226678.

Speak to Keiran.

Hi Micheal
try Paul Tilley who is in Dartmouth or there is Christopher from Henshaws who is an hour down the road from Bristol.
Both post here.

Hi,

Rogue Wave, It's the D ring in the top of the tube. I saw another Gemini (550 I think) in Lymington with the same damage so maybe it's a weak point.

Hi jackeen and Missus hopefully the twins can meet up at Ribex.

Cheers

Mike
