Inflatable Tube Replacement - Re-Tubing
Usually inflatable tubes can be repaired but sometimes repairing the tube is no longer possible or no longer financially viable. Providing that the hull of the craft is still sound (or can be made sound), the entire inflatable tube can be replaced. This replacement is often referred to as re-tubing
