    Does anyone know a manufacturer of tubes in the US? Lot in England but the VAT tax is heavy. I had a link to a company in Eureka, California but have lost it and have searched. Thanks much

    You don't have to pay VAT on export goods from anywhere in the EU.

    Henshaw supply tubes to at least a couple of RIB builders in the US.

    Aquascan in Florida makes good tubes. They can even do bent ones if you don't want to have straight segments around the bow.
