Re-tubing a RIB can drastically improve its appearance extend the boat's working life greatly. With a Hypalon retube, RIBs can leave the factory as a better product than when they were new. The tubes can be can be bonded, 'slip-on' (bolt rope attachment) or flanged & screwed. Hull-bonded tubes can be removed in-house and copied. Re-Tubed boats are not subject to the restrictions of the original tubes – they can be modified cosmetically (colour, handle and strake positions etc) and physically (re shaping of tubes).
