We're looking at buying a Ribeye for a tender and our looking at the Ribeye 4m with a 40hp 4stroke Yam. The Ribeye 4m has Hypatex tubes which have a 2 year warranty wheras the larger Ribeyes use hypalon with a 5 year guarantee.
Can anyone tell me their experiences with the smaller Ribeyes that use Hypatex or tell me what hypatex is and why the warranty is only 2 yrs?
The Ribeye inflatable, tender and playtime ranges use Hypatex.
The Avon Adventure 4m uses hypalon though it doesn't have davit lifting points which is one point that we require.
We currently have an Avon 3.45m Seasport grey/blue which is nearing the end of its life at nearly 20yrs !! The hypalon tubes are showing wear (would you believe it) but we have been extremely satisifed with performance and usability but wanting to upgrade now.
To the Max.
