Tube Liner

I want to obtain and fit a Tube insert section to a 6 m Humber Rib. The repair will be to the bow section.
Who are the suppliers and can anyone offer any useful tips?

If you encounter the words "repair" and "tube" in the same sentence, get somebody else to do it if at all possible!!!

gemini inner tubes

http://rib.net/forum/showthread.php?t=17287

There's a bit on inner tubes on page 2 of this thread.
Gemini says you need 2 tubes for the bow as the bend is too sharp for a single tube.

Wow! I'm impressed. You must have taken Codprawn lessons or something.

Unfortunately, I haven't been working in Rm 196 for about 4 years, so that dig sort of loses its bite. (Of course, that also says a lot about how up-to-date our website is, doesn't it?)

Apologies for hijacking the thread;
