I used them in 2016, no hesitation recommending them - if I recall correctly Kerion was the main man, regards Lee

Have you tried contacting Ed Carter at Ribtube. Very reasonable price.

Rib Tube. I will look them up. Thanks.
Location is also a big factor, as most of these places are in coast areas. I am Essex.

I am currently using Paul at Ribbit Ltd, https://ribbitltd.co.uk/ , for a job on my boat. He is fitting a new rubbing strike, new lifeline points, fitting PRV's and other bits and bobs.

I dropped it down there on Friday and although haven't got it back yet, I did go and see it yesterday and the speed and his attention to detail are impressive.

Based on what I've seen so far, if I were considering any work to the inflatable parts of any Rib, I would at least speak with Paul.

Hope that helps

I would second that of Ribtecer in perhaps contacting Paul at Ribbit Ltd..

I had my ribeye re-tubed in anthracite Hypalon 1300gm complete with rubbing strake

Fantastic job and very competitive in price. Highly recommend

Picked my boat up this afternoon from Paul at Ribbit Ltd.

One day early and beautifully done.

He really knows what he's doing with Ribs, and he's a nice bloke to boot.

I am delighted.

So my boat was pretty good really, alot of work had already been done. Just needed a new rubbing strake.

It had a repair patch at the bow under the strake that I wanted covered up. And the remains of a vinyl name just above the strake heading aft that also needed hiding. This led to a new anchor channel as well.

The old Ribtec badges on the stern were messy and it needed new lifeline anchor points as the old ones were past it visually, Paul made these himself, even sewing them together with a machine. Lastly I wanted PRV's fitted to protect the tubes. Paul at Ribbit did all of the above and has made a fantastic job of it, I could not be happier.

I have no connection to him, I had just heard he is good as he came recommend by a friend. I did struggle to get a reply from him but I persisted and I'm glad I did. I have found before that skilled folk that tend to be good at what they do can be poor with a phone, and those that are good with a phone can be not so good at their work, if you can find both it's a bonus.

Here it is;
