new to the forum scene

hello rib.netters

my name is Tom
I've not been on here before, figured I would show myself, seems a good source of information.

I have been within the rib/inflatable scene as an employee for many years, since late 2002-early 2003 if I remember rightly. I decided to take the plunge in to the self employed scene doing repair, re-tubes(replacement tubes),spruce ups and some freelance work if required.

my business ribfix.co.uk

I own a little 2.6 valiant r.i.b which was pvc, when I get time I will make and fit a new hypalon tube, hopefully this year between jobs,

supposedly can only take a 6hp so no speed demon but hopefully enough to potter around the coast and it fits in the back of a mondeo estate so so no trailer.

Well spotted, I have been between ribcraft and henshaws.
Started in sanding and progressed through the stages.
