DinghyPro also offers used inflatables (when available) and refurbished console style ribs. We try to maintain a decent inventory of used ribs from brands such as Avon, Caribe, Nautica, and Zodiac, that can be refurbished and customized to your needs and taste. In many cases we can offer a refurbed rib for a fraction of the cost of a new boat.

Rib Retubing - At DinghyPro, we specialize in rib retubing. DinghyPro offers factory replacement tubes, also sometimes referred to as Collars or Sponsons, for many brands of rigid hull inflatables including AB, Avon, Bombard,Birg, Caribe, Novurania, Zodiac, Zodiac Hurricane and more. A new tubeset cost can vary greatly by brand, style and age of the rib. Many Zodiac Rib models are assembled using a slide on tube system which can result in a lower labor cost portion of retubing than many other brands. Most ribs are built using a glue on system where the tubes are adhered to the hull using a layered attachment system to bond the tubes to the hull.
Most jobs are done at our shop located in Essex CT. We, routinely install new tubes on ribs for the military, first responders, marine towing agencies, and many recreational users too.
