Avon C7 valve & cap

C7 Valve V00504 Used from about 2000
May be available from some parts dealers.

Note: Service of valve is to replace cap, or cap and valve,
by carefully unscrewing valve holding on to base collar.
To replace entire valve, you must cut out old valve
and glue in replacment mounted in fabric.
Use glue for Hypalon fabrics.
Not recommended except by dealer.
Note: ALL valves will leak slowly unless the cap is screwed down tight.
Sometimes just adjusting or "fluffing up" the "seal"
or O Ring may stop a slow leak.

We do not recommend buying a used boat
over 10 years old or that needs repair.
Inflatables are NOT a wise fixer-up project!
