Retube and Rib collar replacement

Replacing a RIB collar can greatly extend the life of the craft and increase its re-sale value. Humber is a world leader in producing the highest quality tubes on the market. This is down to having 50 years’ experience in the design and manufacture of top quality inflation collars. We have always produced our inflation collars in house and produced over 12,000 sets of tubes.

All tubes are individually hand built by experienced craftsmen and constructed from world recognised top quality Hypalon fabric. Our design and development programme ensures our collars are in a constant stage of evolution allowing us to fulfil the requirements of a demanding market. This allows us to offer designs ranging from the traditional panel collars to the more fashionable style without vertical seams. However, whatever the design, our assembly methods do not vary. Overlapped seams are re-enforced inside and out by strong flexible extreme conditions.

Why Humber Retube?

Also, unlike tubes manufactured from PU or PVC, hypalon fabric does not become porous after a relatively shortly life span. Hypalon allows easy repair by simple gluing without having to engage the services of an expert. For further information on hypalon fabric visit

We also offer a wide range of colours to meet your choice as well as a choice of accessories including handles, rubbing strakes and wear patches. Not only do we offer retubes but we can also supply inflatable tubes to you for self-installation, so if you live abroad or can’t get your boat to us then don’t worry, we will have the tubes sent to you! As standard we also offer a free repair kit including numerous patches in different sizes, an inflation pump and glue. It doesn’t matter how old your boat is or what size it is, we can offer a retube package to meet your needs!
