Tube Material on 2004 Tornado 4.5 Rib

Does anybody know what type of material was used on the Tornado 4.5m Ribs in 2004.

Also any thoughts on this type of rib. Mainly going to be used for coastal waters and of course a little wave jumping (if strong enough), has a 60 Mariner on the back.

Anything i should look out for when looking around the rib.

Thanks

I think the tubes are either PU or PVC, the later hulls were built in China, thats not to say they is anything wrong with them.

If it's this one there's no need to worry as it's been retubed in Hypalon.

I did see this the one you have linked but no, its not the one i was looking at, its this one on here Tornado 4.5 - Mariner 60 hp 2 stroke - 5,800

however i'm still waiting to see if its available any more.

The one on ebay is about 7 hours drive from us, so its not easy to just pop down to have a look at it.
