Do you mean the original tubes from Avon? (in which case I've only seen grey but there might be others). If you mean replacements then the usual suspects can supply "any" colour you want.

Polwart, yes and yes. Ive never had to replace them until now, too many patches. Ive seen the usual gray ones for sale but fancied black or blue. Im guessing black and blue would be more expensive? Anyone replaced 5.4 avon tubes and at what cost were they gray?

Ask "ribraff" from my last conversation I think Ed may have some tubes. Not sure if he has plans for them though.

Any colour you like as long as it's grey.

i have had a set of grey toobs from Ribraff and they wre gine. I also have had 2 set of 5.4 toobs from Paul Tilley one set in Orange and another in Dark blue all good toobs and really enhanced the boat.

A new set made up should cost you around 2000 of your Scottish Pounds probably another 400 to have them fitted.

My Son and I is going to fit a set of toobs on to my rib next weekend if it's sunny I'll send you some pics of the process if you want

Yes please! Got a 4m SR I need to get retubed this winter but am debating whether to so it myself however have no idea how much work is involved.

My main concern is that with hypalon glue if you stick it in wonkey then here's very little chance to straighten it up so I may end up with wonkey tubes! It's hard enough getting small repair patches straight first time!

+1 on this. I have a 5.4 and my local Avon / Zodiac dealer has told me that it would be so expensive to retube it that I might as well buy a new one. I mentioned doing it myself and they said it is very hard to get the tube on straight. I am new to ribs and this may be true. It would be interesting to hear from some other people regaring this, whether they are professionals or DIY types.

I am a DIY
It was a bit daunting at first but I did put the tubes on my 7.7m rib, on my own. Planning, preparation the instructions from Chris at Henshaws helped.

Ask the same question to a tube manuf. & you'll get a different answer I'm sure

I figured this would be the case. I'm glad it is. My tubes still have a few years on them but I always like to know what my options are in advance. Thanks for the information guys.
