Need tubes for Zodiac YL380, Canada

My 2001 YL380 finally needs a new set of tubes (original hypalon still on the boat is way past its prime, inner cells have collapsed so entire boat inflates/deflates from one valve), just wondering if anyone has suggestions for replacements in Canada? The Zodiac dealer has quoted $2800 and delivery "maybe" by next July. I can live with the price but I need them before that since July is a family vacation rental...9 mos seems an awfully long lead time even in these crazy days of supply chain issues. Looking for the neoprene/hypalon stuff, preferably not PVC. Thanks for any suggestions!

Try Defender in Waterford, CT Zodiac tubes Pre-Winter Sale

Your 2001 YL380DL likely came with PVC tubes, as Zodiac did not offer Hypalon tubes for the Yachtline series back then.

You can try Defender who is having a sale on tubes now. www.defender.com
Link: https://www.defender.com/search.html?q=zodiac+tubes

I am pretty sure these are the ones that you would need

Good luck!!!
Happy Holidays

Stephan
