Rib Tubes

While im in the process of getting my rib all sparkling again does anyone know the rough cost of retubing a 6.3m rib? Just trying to set out my budget for the year? Also who are the best people to deal with this??

Hi

Try giving Ribcraft a call, they did a superb job on Chris's Rib (Hugh Jardon) on here, plus I believe they were very competitively priced.

Get quotes from all of the leading tubers:

Paul Tilley (tidel.biz)
Ribcraft as Nauti states
Henshaws
Eurocraft
Im sorry to say I would avoid Olmec due to customer service issues which I hope will be resolved.
I would also contact Ocean (Windsor Marine) and see who the original tube supplier was as they may well have the patterns etc.
