have not gotten that far yet. I will be first stripping the entire boat down to bare hull and work my way up. Looking at possiby a 225 mariner right now because I can get it cheap but that will be a while. I have to first figure out how to attach the tubes. I dont have the flange on the hull that most of the zodiacs seam to have.
pathella does your boat have a flange that the tubes slide into or are they just bolted onto the hull. Also I was looking into useing Demerres boats in Maryland when I do get a new tube set. I noticed you had your tubes repaired there. How did you like them? I noticed you also had a blowout on the tube, what was your thinking about that. My other option was to have a set of tubes made by Paul Tilley on this forum make me a set but now am not shure that I will be able to put them on myself. I will know a lot more tomorrow and take some good pics, Ill be looking for loads of info for the next year or so..
Searider. Is your gas tank sealed into the deck, Have you ever taken it out. Mine looks like it is too much trouble to remove. There was no caps on the fule pipes so probally have a bunch of water in there as well.
Ill post some pics tomorrow
