I do recall that you posted the comment on boatmad which is inconvenient, as it was almost definitely before Jon lost the first database!

Yep - certainly very relevant about the one piece or sectional as I believe that one piece are usually much more costly.

No you don't and no it's not.

That'll be why Humber have changed to that method, then.

Well, there's nothing like direct contradiction is there? Not to mention you knowing my mind better than I do

Have Humber changed all their models and sizes to that (one piece) method?

I won't embarrass you further by posting a link to the thread.

Don't make it a secret!

Anyway, knew you wouldn't know the answer to the other question... they introduced one piece tubes a couple of years ago, but only standard for the larger RIBs (9m+) if I remember correctly, which of course, I may not! (accordong to you)

The thing here is that you're not comparing like for like. The fact that you paid xxx.00 for a hull + tubes from Humber back in 2003 has foxtrot uniform charlie kilo all to do with the fact that matey paid yyy.00 to have the tubes removed, then new ones made and fitted to his RIB five years later.

What I would be interested to hear is how much others have paid for retubes from reputable sources?

been away for a week or so and it sounds like a can of worms has opened just to clarify the tubes cost 4120.50 including VAT this was to take old tubes off and dispose of, have new tubes made by Henshaws (I will also point out Graham at scorpion was kind enough to give me templats for the old style of tubes so they would be an exact match to the old ones) scott then was kind enough to lend me his shed so I could paint the deck. The tubes where put on a couple of days later and look emaculute.

I have been in the trade for a long time and seen retube jobs befour and none of them compare to the job which Rib Ripair have done.

All I will say is pay peanuts get monkeys
