Sib/RibTube fittings - where to buy?
We recently purchased an inflatable kayak from Networld Sports which is made out of PVC with a dropstitch floor and we are really happy with it compared to our Sevylor Colorado. I compared repair kit samples with a micrometer and it's made from PVC the same thickness as our Mercury RIB. Obviously it was made in China (and in a hurry)..
Anyway although very rigid and a good performer it's lacking practical features like grab handles and a bow ring, I was wondering where SIB/RIB manufacturers get the bits and bobs they glue to the tubes? Where can I buy these items and what is the best glue?
Incidentally if anyone is considering a transaction with the aforementioned company then buyer beware. They don't take phone calls and never respond to emails, we paid extra for fast delivery and they didn't dispatch goods even though they were showing in stock. Opening a PayPal dispute worked but what sort of way to run a company is this? Deliberately using Covid19 as excuse for poor service.
