What is the suggested repair for this please?

photo attached. Its the join at the rear of the tube where it joins the cone. I'm new to ribbing so I don't want to get the repair wrong. Tubes are Hypalon and it appears its just the material on the outer layer that has come away from the fabric.

As soon as you touch that with glue or solvent it will curl up. It's just the outer layer. My answer would be put a small patch over it. If you can live with it but don't like a white bit on your tube colour it in

Structurally itís not yet a problem but if you are unhappy with the cosmetics we would remove the seam and replace it. You will fine that now the blue Hypalon layer has started to peel it will slowly spread along the seem.

He's right, I can see it better on a computer rather than the phone, definitely change the tape it's will give you an opportunity to glue the rubbing strake back as well

Biff's right about the rubbing strake. They generally give trouble once they start to come off at the cone-end. Trouble like a couple of meters coming off when you're on the water. Don't ask me how I know this

It's when you stuff it and the front 2 metres of it blacks both your eyes, don't ask me how I know this

Hi Russell, you need to pop up the road to chat with Scott Bray of Rib Repair, Scott has just done a small tube repair on my Rib.

Dunno if it helps but Avon have a 10 year guarantee on their fabric, if its under 10 years old go and have a chat to BHG and see if they can help.
