What holds the tubes to the hull, are the tubes directly glued to hull or/and externally taped? There looks like a bit of a previous bodge (bodge as in, huge amounts of glue and lack of preparation) of glueing tubes directly to hull with a 2" wide bit of black tape sandwiched in-between.
I do believe in preperation, do I want to sand down the outersurface of the hypalon to the reinforcing cloth to get best adhesion?
Paul, Where can I get a method statement for attaching tubes to hull?
Please can you PM me with an approximate cost of you re-attaching the tubes to the hull (It's a Flatacraft Force 4 Commercial - solid hull, no front hinged bit)
