Each boat manufacturer uses the tube fabric that is specific to their manufacturing process. This could be neoprene/Hypalon of varying grades of thickness, PVC of varying grades or various grades of urethane. Each fabric has their selling point which may be anything from cost to durability.
If you find that the tubes on your rigid hull boat have not withstood the test of time, the elements or some unexpected disaster like a bear attack, we can provide you with a new replacement set of tubes.
The new tubes will be constructed of high-quality neoprene/Hypalon as we believe in this fabric as it has excellent durability, longevity and a 50-year history of successful use around the world.
Polaris has provided new tube sets for many rigid-hulled inflatable boat manufacturers such as Zodiac, Novurania, Avon, Metzler, Caribe and others.
Polaris can also provide you with an aluminum replacement hull for your RIB or for your fully inflatable boat. If you have a fiberglass hull or a fabric bottom that is damaged beyond repair but the tubes are in good condition, you may want to consider a new hull for your tubes. It is sometimes a cost saving alternative to a new boat.
