Knowing a few Friends who've had re-tubes on various sized RIBs done at Henshaws here in England... the Cheaper quote definitely sounds the most realistic
..presuming ofcourse they are a good outfit!
I would say that who ever you go with....make sure they've done good work in the past!...it may even be worth a call to Chris at Henshaws to get a second opinion/quote/info to put you're mind at rest.
Good luck...and Welcome to Ribnet!
