The analogy doesn't really work though. One will still be there thirty years later albeit looking a bit dog eared but still functional and the other will probably require more tlc then let you down quite quickly before eventually dying completely!

I still know which I would prefer under me!.. The point was..a simple one.. ie Hypalon (In my view naturaly) is in a Totaly Different Class than UPVC. It sounds like you may be in real danger of agreeing with me??.. Or not?

Paul tilley, TIDEL : Hypalon RIB Tubes : New and Replacement Inflatable Retubes and Boat Tube Repairs, the most helpful man in the rib world. IMHO the best tube maker.

Rib Retube

I had a full retube of a 5.8 Narwhal done a few years back by Tamar Inflatables in Lostwithiel, Cornwall. Did a fantastic job and were over 1k cheaper than any other quote I got. Job was in hypalon and they put a load of extra rubbing patches, D fendering etc on in the price. They even collected the boat. Highly recommended.. See Liferafts and Inflatables

if you are saying what I think you are - I think she'll be a bit wrotten (even more fousty than the other choice!) so you are a very sick individual

Aye, except you can't make inflatable boat tubes from uPVC (you use that for window frames!). If you read my other post you'd see I made the point hypalon v's PVC there is no competition, and a very limited retubing market for PVC as a result - but PU is in many ways competitive with hypalon and is available for retubes.

PVC Vs Hypalon - repairs

I punctured a tube on my (PVC tubed) Narwhal a few years back. I couldn't find anyone in the country who would guarantee a repair to PVC tubes. Ended up retubing in Hypalon - see my previous post. No experience of PU but in the Hypa Vs PVC debate its a no-brainer. Hypalon every time.
