Unsolicited praise

I'm in the habit or praising small businesses who provide me, the consumer, with a great product at a reasonable price at the same time as offering world-class customer services. I recently had the need to re-tube a 7M rib after a disastrous experience with Gimini Industries. I researched the posts on this forum and decided to invite Paul Tilley of Tidewell to see what he could do.

Paul did an amazing job of manufacturing and replacing the tubes on my boat. I strongly recommend him and his company to anyone needing to re-tube a RIB.

Mr Tilley has an excellent reputation and his business is called TIDEL (for those finding this in the future)

Yes paul is always very helpful and indeed deserves all the credit he receives and further more should be supported by Ribnetters.
