Toobs falling to bits at speed!

Hi, now I have finally got the boat on the water I heard a noise and a funny spray pattern at the rear of the tubes. Now I have the boat out of the water I can see that the lower rubbing strake has come off at the rear of the tubes at the cone end (see photos) and both sides. I have tried to glue / repair this before but am now concerned that this going to be difficult to reglue as the outer tube (orange) is stuck to the back of the strake and there is now nothing to glue it too.

Anybody got any ideas?

As I have done all the work in the past myself I must admit I am tempted to take it to the experts as tube replacement is costly!

Thanks

Gareth

hi Gareth,
I'm no expert by any stretch of the imagination, but to me it looks like both surfaces need to be cleaned back the original material before trying to re-glue, unless you can achieve that I don't think you have much hope. if it were me, I'd be taking it to someone who's got the know how and kit to do a proper job, there are a couple of tubes builders / repairers locally that could do it for you. or have a word with Jeff Hutcheon on here, he's got a mate with access to the right kit, he may be able to help.

maybe best keeping Nat away from your rib, she is ways causing trouble that one

Hi Chris, thanks for the advice and I will have a chat with jeff as I agree that its probarbly a job beyond me. Was out with Nat at the weekend just gone. You will need to ask her about the Irish man with no shoes that she fished out of the Mersey and the mud surfing by out slip way!

You need to go careful with this one a where the fender has come away it has taken the top Hypalon layer with it. Don't do to much sanding on the tube itself as it is already down to the weave. For this to work you will need to prep and glue the old bits back on and extend the rub strake using s Hypalon strip for the fender to stay glued on.

ah, for once I was right, get some help from the professionals, it may cost a few bob but be far cheaper in the long run

hmmmmm...... Knowing Nat it's my guess she pushed him overboard in the first place, and pinched his shoes as he went over the side, very dodgy character
