Tubes have just been fitted and my thoughts are that there shouldn't be a leak/water path between the hull flange and the tubes.
What is the opinion on this? Ok or not ok?
You can just see the water running down the hull in the photo.
Thanks in advance.
Hope your well...
If you just had the tubes done, I would be taking that back...there is a lot of glue on show there, not that neat a job, and dont let them fob you off with it being somehow "ok". I had a retube from Humber, it didnt leak, I wouldnt have expected it to leak. That gap will just get bigger over time. They need to put it right, and clean off some of that glue. It could also be that the join/seam has slipped as the glue seems to be an even distance from the overlap in the picture, or could just be messy. Either way, boat tubes shouldn't leak. there shouldnt be a gap between the hull and the tubes that lets in water. Ask them to put it right.
