Replacing tubes

Can anyone tell me very roughly how much a new set of tubes costs for a Zodiac 500 RIB? Also, do companies make aftermarket ones that are cheaper than Zodiac originals?
Thanks.
Tim.

Not an expert but I contacted Henshaws for a conceptual price for a Pac 22. Think they gave me a budget of 6k and that's a big boat of course.

Their response times are great and I believe they have a very good reputation.

Another vote for Henshaw, retubed my Arctic for about 5k.

Tim, there is not a lot in it, a set of genuine Zodiac PVC tubes with all the bits pre fitted is around 1800 ex fitting and vat a set of aftermarket Hypalon tubes with fender and handles supplied is around 1700.00 plus the fitting. the fitting of the Hypalon tubes will be a good 200 abow the Zodaic as the fender and handles etc are not pre fitted.

If you need any more info drop me an email kieron@rib-shop.com

Hi all, is it easy to change the tubes? I've got a Zodiac 4.2 rib, it looks like the tube pulls off the bow, any body know or have done this? Many thanks. Jason.

Its not too hard. I just pulled the tubes onto a 6.7 meter Zodiac. Just me and a buddy, some sweat and a bucket of soapy water. It took about 30 minutes.
