Sounds like a decent showing of RIBs, but I wonder why there weren't more RIBs bigger than 15'. I'm really surprised to hear that about the Ribcraft guys - I've always found them to be very attentive...

If you're looking to have a bracket installed on your Searider, might be worthy of talking to a dealer that also sells RIBs. I know Brown's Yacht Yard up in Gloucester, MA sells the full line of...

I'd give some of the Aurora products a try (speed clean and polyguard). From what I can tell, these products are designed specifically for Hypalon tubes. You could also use something called 303...

Polyguard is great stuff - really makes the tubes look good. The only down side is once you've applied it you have to keep it up. I noticed that it can get a white chalky appearence if you don't...

I've used a pressure washer on the hull - works actually quite well with no damage to the hull. I've been told to keep it away from the tube as the pressure could easily peel back the patches holding...

I had the same problem and tried three times on my own to repair the rubstrake. I've had great success with patches and other tube repairs, but the rubstrake is a whole other beast. It's well worth...
