Tube Covers.

Hi All,
What do you think about these tube covers? I see them a lot in my region and many people advice them especially for hot med.

Would probably be useful here as a RIB blanket at the moment.

Hi, do you know who supplies RIB tube covers and how much would it cost to fit a 6m Osprey?

Buy a bottle of Aerospace 303 Protectant and apply periodically to engine cowl, seats, tubes...

Happy Boating

A friend of mine on an old Avon has sewn together old sails as covers - looks cool

Tube covers

They are very good and will extend the life of your tubes as most damage results from exposure to sunlight.

Just put something over the tubes when your are not using the boat, preferably a light colour so as to reflect sunlight and heat away from the collar.

It is also worth slightly deflating the tubes when the boat is not in use to take pressure off the seams and also leave plenty of space in the tubes for heat expansion in hot weather
