Tube advice

Hopefully have managed to attach a couple of photos of a rib I hope to view tomorrow, is it my imagination or are the tubes ‘dipping ‘ at around the half way point?

Is that normal? Is it an issue? Any help would be appreciated.

It could be a lot of things, but it is usually caused by bad tube installation.

Appreciate the reply, I’m going to have to be quicker off the mark��. A deposit has been paid on the rib in question, that’s two I’ve missed in a week.

Doesn't look TOO Bad from the pics IMO...maybe looks a bit lower than some.
What RIB is it?? Maybe someone on here could help who owns the same model
Have you compared it to others (Photss) of the same Mark and size??
Different Hulls/Models hold the Tubes differently on the water and have varying profiles....photos do sometimes play tricks.

Tube advice

Depends on the tube diameter to the tube carrier positioning. Tube Fitting can play a factor also.

Looks to me like the tube diameter increases to quick... giving that bulge look.... Hard to see from the pictures but I would like to see some pictures from inside if poss?? Or its a dodgy rubbing straight line which will give false illusions....
Or when the tube was fitted I think or pretty sure that the outside seam was to high both sides (( seam under rubbing straight )) hence thats why the rubbing straight line follows it making it go high and low.... Like the tube was twisted before fitted..
