I agree on the SR been an ace boat but there is nothing wrong with a Zodiac. I have one that you would probably laugh at. But, it's great fun, comfy, goes well..... but it dont have a bar or babes (the wife joins me occasionally but she dont count). Hope you manage to get your tubes sorted (at the right price) soon mate.

I used to have a baby Searider ~4m - was amazing I must say out in the big swell. The Zodiac I find is more of a river boat - great in the flat water but slams in the waves rather than slicing through them like the SR. My Pro 530 with the twin 60's does get up to ~ 50 knots though!

Zodiac Pro 530 Tubes

Would be pleased to manufacture a replacement set of tubes to suit the Zodiac Pro 530 and they would be manufactured in Hypalon coated fabric. Have sent you a PM with quote and shipping costs to Australia

tube

I have a friend working for a tube maker in Italy, and I just had my pontoon rebuilt with 1670decitex Orca hypalon - one word is great !
At a very affordable price, that's not bad ...

If you were interested, feel free to send me an Email, I will answer with the price and conditions - one being that you must know someone in Australia able to glue the tube to the hull.
The tube should be "bare", ie without any handles, rubbing strake ... so it is very light for shipping, easily folded to stay into a slim parcel

Many thanks for contacting me - I would prefer to have all the extras supplied and glued up front - just pull the new tubes on and put the boat in the water is what I am aiming. Thanks anyway for the post - much appreciated

I believe you get the bare tubes and a fitting kit.
Once the tubes are on the boat then you glue the handles, strakes, lifelines on etc so it looks right.

Are the toobs glued to this Zodiac, or do they slide into a slot in the GRP?
