I just purchased a yacht with on older Avon inflatable
. It leaks
to almost flat in about 6 hours, so i poured diluted washing
up liquid over the whole boat and found the valves were leaking.
The boat probably hadn't been used i a while, so i tightened all the valves and reinflated. Front half of the boat is great, hardly deflated, but can't say the same for the back half...luckily that's where the crew sits!!
Anyone have any advice for servicing these valves? it has 2 parts
, one with a one way flap type valve, which can be unscrewed for rapid deflation, and the other which acts as a cap over this valve, also threaded.
I was thinking vaseline or something to lubricate the rubber seals
, but open to any suggestions
