Top retube work by Paul Tilley

Just to say thanks to Paul on the forum here

Got my little Tornado back today from Devon (by a very handy man who I will mention later )

Lovely job Paul and his guys have done a great job, the boat looks like new as a result, he put 5 chambers in too without me even asking ,which for a 5.3m is nice and as its hypalon now as opposed to the OEM's PU or PVC, it looks great and will no doubt last for years All done in a good time frame when you were no doubt very busy too Paul ? , and I hope your health continues to recover well after your recent events too mate

Thanks again

Now to find a Yam 90 and new console

A neat looking job - maybe now we'll see a few more photies of your future adventures in her?

So, who's the Mystery Courier then?

Well .. I was embarrased to post a pic of it all deflated with them burst, it looked like a drowned rat

Cant remember if I posted the story of how the original finally burst big time which involved the port cone acting as a scoop and filling the entire port tube with sea water at 30 knots

The RIB man in me wanted to pull out my Bowie knife and slash the tube to release the pressure .. but being a gentleman I pushed my finger into the valve instead

Bigmuz7 thanks for the compliments ,the guys that work for me do a very good job and have done me proud during the last few months with the help of my wife and son who will hopefully take over the business one day .whilst i am on I would like to thank every ribnetter for their well wishes ,i was only out of contact with the business whilst in intensive care the rest of the time email and mobiles took care of everything .I have now got a lung capacity of 24% (approx half a lung) and very very slowly improving even back to racing a motorbike in speed hillclimb events
