The chaps name is Paul Heaysman, Ribbit Ltd..Portchester, introduced to me by Roy Winkworth via Mark @ MB Marine Sales LTD. Southampton.

Right, that's my local 'plug' sorted, but I reckon they deserve a bit of praise every now and again!

Wow that looks good. You have any pics of the old tube's 'girlie' color?

It's not really a girlie colour, that's my justification to change it totally. Most opinions given before-hand suggested to keep it exactly the same as original. Won't get second hand value, people won't know it's a ribeye and many other bollocks talked about. The price to copy with two colours and fancy stripes and 'eye' was out of my game.

So I'm glad I went with my own feelings

I love the new color!
but I'm alos partial to safety ropes so the plain tubes look a little odd to me.

Agreed, perhaps some dark grey ropes with light grey holders would have looked smart. More costs though
