Defo...if you can stretch to new tubes it'll add proper value and transform the boat.

If Chris has some surplus tubes that could fit.....beg steal and borrow the money to get them if at all possible.

ollyit, can you actually see evidence of air loss through the worn areas? If so then a hypalon patch section might be a solution for a year or so. If not, I'd keep looking for the leak. I've seen tubes that worn that didn't leak quickly...

I was on the horns of this dilemma a year ago... The trouble is, you just fix one bit and the next bit along goes.. That was fine when it was seams I could manage but then it was the sponson cone that scooped and filled most of the port tube with water, fine at 20 knots but not so good when you stop and go ...um .... I paid for new uns, and I'm glad I did... It 'is' like a new boat

thanks all
WE'VE BEEN THERE BEFORE BUD SO YOU KNOW THE KINDA TIME YOU CAN BE WASTING.. SCUSE CAPS.

is the weave exposed by friction/abrasion ie mooring rope or delamination /polymerisation
