Hopefully someone like Ribraff (who makes/repairs) tubes will answer but my thoughts are as the baffles are internal I can't think how you can repair them without opening up the tube and/or removing from the boat. The other people you might try for advice are Henshaws. Chris H I think it is who runs Henshaws does post on here occasionally. Maybe worth giving them a call?

HTH,
Alan

Baffle repair success at last

It was a steep learning curve but eventually, after several attempts I managed to repair the leaking baffles without removing the tubes from the hull.
As Paul Tilley stated in reply to my original message is possible but certainly not easy!
My advice to anyone attempting a repair of this type is to talk to Paul Tilley his advice was spot on, without it I doubt if I would have been able to finish this repair.
Paul's business is Rib & tube repair I would recommend him to anyone, the only reason I didnít ask him to fix my rib is due to the distance. If you want to contact him see previous messages.
Paul thanks again for your advice
