Can anyone help me find a good manufacturer of new hypalon tubes in Florida USA? Or, anywhere near the British Virgin Islands. Google has not been much help so far.

Thanks

The only place that I know of- and happens to have a great reputation is Aquascan Inc. in Fort Lauderdale Florida
They are manufacturers but also do retubing, rigging etc.
I know a lot of commercial towing companies as well as several units of the police department use them when they need their inflatables retubed

you can call at 954 463 0579 -ask for Hugo

Holy *&%!

OK. I tried Aquascan. US$14,000 (yes, fourteen thousand) to re-tube a Caribe C20. I have been quoted US$13,500 for a whole new Caribe C20. New tubes from caribe are $6500 and Ribcraft in UK quoted 3500 including fitting.

Ho hum.

Why dont you get them done in the Uk?? then ship them over and take your friendly tuber to one side- offer him a 1000$ to put them on .. and you haved saved yourself a lot of doe.The boats pretty standard and you can easily get then done ( sic) in the uk for under $3000.

Or get the toobs manufactured in UK and offer your friendly tube supplier an expensed trip to wherever you are to fit em. Must be able to come to an arrangement for less than 14k US!

As long as you're looking, the polyurethane tubes made by Wing in California look pretty good. Have no idea what their pricing is, though. Probably pretty steep. If you look into it, let me know.
