please send it along.
DinghyPro is Chris & Jeff Going. Chris is on the forum as "cgoing". Jeff is his dad, who is a former national sales manager for Zodiac. Both of them are industry veterans, and are well-liked. They're well set up to retube a boat that size and could probably do it with their eyes closed as this point (They retubed a bunch of USCG Seariders last year).
The only other shop capable of that kind of work in the area is New England Inflatables (Mark Bourdessa), but last I talked to him, he was insanely swamped with work (then again, so is everyone this time of year).
For simple-to-moderate repairs, there's D&M Inflatables in Pembroke/Hingham, and Westerbeke in Boston, but for a retube, I'd stick with DinghyPro.
Chris & Jeff are both RIB geeks, and you'll get your money's worth.
Hope this helps.
