Tube repair problem

Hi
I have a seam lifting and small punctures just in front of the seam on the arse end of one tube on my rib. The seam is the last seam going around the tube that joins the end doomed part of the tube, behind the transom, it's lifting right on the bottom of the tube and faces forward so water keeps opening it up.

All repair attempts have failed, any advice on the best way to get this sorted.

Take it to someone who builds and repairs tubes.

I am based in the North West, Paul Tilley is in the South West.

Whereabouts are you based?

Hi Dave, just got of the phone with Henshaws, going to take it there, only an hour away for me, they are going to fix it and adapt both sides so a seam isn't at 90 to the water flow

Or you have Giovanni at RodellaRibs in Poole - several people on here (myself included!) have used him and had very good results.
