Jon, any chance of a photo, hopefully someone will recognise which type of valve you have.

Are they made by Dunlop?

hello

we had a Dunlop c12 with a volvo penta 25hp - wooden floor with inflatable keel.

This was bought in 1976 ( If I remember)

We used to launch in Greenwich - where the millenium dome is now built. We had to drive through the old gas works to a very steep and narrow slip. I was 13. When dad was working Mum would take us down - but she would'nt reverse down the slip. So I used to do it!

But once launched we had some really good thames trips. virtually every weekend -

Is that the C-Craft?

C-Craft

Many years ago I used to sell C-Craft inflatables and they were eventually bought by Dunlop who then amalgamated with Beaufort and eventually stopped manufacturing in the late 70's or early 80's. The name C-Craft ceased when Dunlop bought them in the early 70's, so your inflatable is about 30 years old!

The valves changed a number of times during the companies existance and it would prove difficult to obtain spares; however, new valves can be fitted but these could cost up to 15.00 each to buy and then you have to fit them.

Eurocraft in Leyland, Lancs, will sell you valves and glue and there number is 01772 622856.

Good luck.
