How much?

Ok Chris, I have to ask; how much would this retube cost? I have an identical boat to this Macmillan rib and am considering retubing.

you can't ask Chris a question like that, this is a one off what you need is some fairy tube cleaner and a handful of green scourer pads

but to save Chris spilling the beans, I bet he hasn't even counted the true cost of what they have done on the MacMillan rib, the new tubes on my SR4 were just over 2k, but that's only a roughish guide

Why don't you buy the ones that are being refurb as we speak

Haha, on balance, over the past 30 years I've found that asking questions you're not supposed to ask has got me a very long way in life so far!

The tubes I have already are fine for now but I'm interested in the cost of a 'proper job' done by the 'A' team. I'm happy to receive a pm from the man himself if he doesn't want to publicise the price but I'd have thought a ball-park figure for a 5.4 re-tube wouldn't have been classified info? The man surely deserves to win some business as a result of his fantastic generosity thus far, doesn't he?

Not interested in refurbed tubes but am very interested in the cost of a new set

I was only jesting Tony, I agree with you that Chris and his team do deserve to win some business from the fantastic gesture they have made, although I'm sure that wasn't the reason they took the work on
