I see an inboard bolt-rope, so they must be fairly easily removable...

wow that boat has sat outside for a long time. It always baffles me why people let these type boats get so abused for so long before deciding to sell.

Question about tube removal

A little help.

New to the forum and have been looking at this boat. How can you tell if the tubes are removable/replaceable? I am concerned if the tubes are not repairable.

Some guidance would be appreciated.

Thanks

Mike

Tubes appear to be removable based on 2nd picture. You can see the track in which the rope slides into that holds the tubes on. I know that there are manufactures that can make a set of tubes based on the old set, but beware new tubes are not cheap.

Looks like the seller has lowered the price to $1400. Seems pretty fair to me.

Worst case scenario, You would need to purchase new tubes. At this price its still a bargain.
