This is a 27 year old Rigid Inflatable Boat that had a set of (not very old) PVC replacement tubes on it. Bad seams, faded tubes and just nasty looking.The before and after photos say it all. New bright red “Orca 866” military grade hypalon tubes with lots of pure EPDM Rubber chafe protection and this RIB is ready to go back to do the hard work she was meant to do!
This is a 26 year old Zodiac Hurricane 7.3m that has been “driven hard and put away wet…” in the unforgiving world of marine towing and salvage. The first two photos show how she looked when we took her in…the next two photos show how she looked when she was going back into service.
