Bombard valves & parts?
So, playing around with the boat (Bombard Aerotec 420, built in 2000) on dry land only so far, and a couple of questions:
What sort of valve is used on the main tubes - I've managed to inflate it using a Halkey-Roberts fitting but I'm not sure it's quite the right size as it doesn't seem to want to lock when you twist it and I don't want to force it and break something. I think it's the 'Zodiac Semi-recessed' valve with a bayonet cap - is this Halkey-Roberts compatible? Particularly as I'd like to get a pressure gauge and need to know what fitting to get.
Secondly, can you get replacements for the straps and buckles that hold the airdeck to the hull - some have been replaced over the years with varying degrees of success, in one case the buckle is too small for the PVC strap, others the patch that's glued onto the hull is too big and doesn't sit well.
Nothing major, but something I'd like to fix.
