Kit Instructions

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.
You could try sliding a strip of dental "tape" under the seal to raise it.

Before buying a used inflatable, please be sure you know what you are getting into.
We get several inquiries a week from buyers of used "like new" inflatables that are very costly or impossible to repair!
We also hear about commercial type boats "retired" from Government use that have missing valves.
The valves and even ID plates were often removed in order to diasble the boat from further use. Do not buy them!

Please e-mail us about parts questions or for repair suggestions.
We urge you to determine first the model and year of your boat .
The last two digits of the Avon Hull or serial number denote the year.
