Channel Island re-tubes


Whilst the majority of our re-tube work takes place in our workshops in Swanwick, we travel to the Channel Islands on a regular basis to carry out fits and undertake repairs. Having just returned from Jersey, our team are preparing for a second trip this month, followed by a trip to Guernsey in April. If you would like us to quote to re-tube your Rib in Jersey or Guernsey, please contact kieron@rib-shop.com to discuss your requirements. 

Our last visit to Jersey saw us re-tube a Prosport 9m in Neptune Grey Hypalon with black fittings, a Tornado 6.2m in Ocean Blue Hypalon with black accessories and Neptune Grey wear patches and fit new slide-on tubes to a Zodiac Pro Open.
