Inflatable Tube Repair
Tube Attachment Repairs
If your RIB tube is the glued on type, it may occasionally become detached from the hull. In this event the #Inflatable Tube repair is a simple case of cleaning both surfaces of all sand and salt and sanding both surfaces to a dull finish before re-gluing. All traces of dust, grease and finger oils must be removed from prepped area before re-gluing. Glue is applied to both surfaces and allowed to start to go off before applying a second layer of glue. Again wait for the glue to start to go off and becomes non tacky before joining surfaces. When applying glue layers to the crevices at each end of the hypalon #repair, care must be taken not to put too much glue in the crevices. Too much glue in the crevices will cause a weak point in the repair. Follow glue manufacturers directions for optimum bonding of your boat tube repairing. Allow full curing time before use.

Inflatable boat tube.
RIB Collars are the inflatable collars which are attached to the hull of a rigid-hull# inflatable boat (RIB). They have evolved from the early days of inflatables, into complex and technical inflatable structures using high tech fabric with very durable characteristics. RIB Collars can be made in wide range of colors and styles utilizing a variety of construction techniques suited to the particular boat type.
Aquascan can manufacture to suit any hull design from small to large using the best material available in the market.
Inflatable Collars are also sometimes referred to as RIB Sponsons or pontoons which are the generic term for an outer extension to a boat at the waterline. In the case of a RIB the word sponson either means additional buoyancy and thus stability against capsize, or to add hydrodynamic forces to resist capsize. A RIB Collar  can often be easily attached to an existing craft to improve its stability.
Inflatable Retube
#Retubing your yacht tender is a cost effective way of upgrading and giving your inflatable a new and prolonged life. Providing the hull is sound and strong  retubing your inflatable will make it look like new.

Aquascan Wide Deck Series

Always working towards the future, Aquascan is proud to introduce the NEW #Wide Deck
series
For over 20 years Aquascan has been building custom # yacht #tenders outboards and jets; focused on hand made, high quality and high performance custom inflatable boats for the most demanding consumer.
The Aquascan Storm 12WD continues in this tradition. Hand laid fiberglass and high
grade inflatable collars lay the foundation of a superior craftsmanship tender that
planes effortlessly with little horse power, for a comfortably smooth and dry
ride.
The Aquascan Storm 12 WD is designed with a spacious interior and yacht quality
detailing. A Mahogany steering wheel, mahogany railings inlaid with LED lights, stainless
steel seats, custom colored collars and upholstery are just some of the limitless options available .
100% proudly made in the USA, with manufacturing plants in Fort Lauderdale and
Palm Beach, the Aquascan WideDeck12 RIB tender is quickly becoming a fan favorite
for the 2015 season.
The 12 WD rides equally smooth and dry in calm water as well as choppy seas.
The swim platform features faux teak which stretches all the way to the boarding area and the entire deck. Large stainless steel aft grab rails provided assistance while
boarding.
The Wide Deck series provides a tapered collar end and convenient aft cleats for docking.
The wide, stylish console is designed to provide plenty of space for instruments,
gauges and switch panels. While keeping in mind the comfort for even the tallest driver, 
an optional tilt helm gives space to accommodate your knees for a comfortable and easy
drive.
There is plenty of storage space under the rear seat and inside the console and bow area.
More models to be added soon from 12' to 18' WD."
