Retubing a Ribeye 600

Currently exploring the possibility of re-tubing a "playtime 600" dating from 2002. Does anybody have any experience of doing so, or pictures of non manufacturer replacements they have had fitted ? I'm a
little concerned by retro fitting other tubes which will detract from the look of the boat.

Anybody who would like to give me a quote for a retube either with the correct tubes, or a good quality alternative please feel free to drop me a PM

Cheers

Lansdale had a playtime 550, pretty much the same, that was re tubed on brokerage in their yard a couple of months ago, not sure if it sold but looked ok, apart form the fact it was hyperlon you'd never have noticed.

Think this is it...

Chris at Henshaws or Ribraff are your men to do it, weren't the earlier ribeyes in Hypolon material and mainly in blue??
So as a retro fit replacement should be fine

They look great. Can you PM me a ballpark figure for the job please ?

At the moment I'm trying to obtain a few quotes to see if it's viable as the rib is in need of a few jobs. I'm half tempted to let it go as a cheap project for somebody but would quite like to re-tube and get her back up to scratch.

Cheers
