ha!!...no such luck mollers!!!....

polwart...think you may have cracked the problem!!...assuming they still have them in stock, and the price isnt too much...I think IBS may have them, but they dont give a price on their price list, which makes me wonder if they no longer have them in stock! the description looks right:

SCREW IN REMOVEABLE VALVE product number 811343
Screw in removable valve as fitted in
early Quicksilver, Maxxons etc
Colour: Black

..however, the picture is small, and i cant see the screw thread that would couple with the female thread i have on my boat, but i will try to call them on monday and find out. if not, I was wondering if i could just use a piece of solid plastic, threaded to the right diameter to fit, and just put up with loosing a little air when pulling the pump hose out and screwing the threaded block in??

Arse. Dont believe it!...got three of the valves from the ebay link a few posts above this, after getting thread measurements from the seller. Unfortunately, with us both being out by a millimeter or two the bloomin thing is too big!!...it goes into the hole until you get to the thread, which is a mm or so wider than the rest of the valve, but the threads are too big!....also, the plunger bit that opens to allow the air in only slightly smaller than the thread!!

I was wondering, as it seems that I am not going to be able to get the correct valves for this boat, I am wondering if I got the valves I now own re-threaded so that they fit the male thread on my boat, and drill out the "lip" that you can see in the pictures of my valve, at the end of the male thread, so that the plunger can go in and out when the new valve is screwed in?...anyone tried such a thing? cheers for now.

Oh, and I wont be able to take the male part of the original valve out of my boat and replace it with my new male valve, as they seem to have been fitted from the inside, and have quite a wide solid area around them, which is obviously glued to the inside of the tube! Below is a pic of my new thread, taken from the net:

come on guys!!!...has anyone ever modded their boats or valves when valves are no longer available for them?....i am happy to drill out internal lip inside my boat valve to allow the new plunge bit to push in and out, and get the new threads re threaded to the right size...does anyone think/know whether it would work? cheers!

It looks like you have Halkey-Roberts valves. You might be able to find replacements from a whitewater rafting shop as that type of valve is used on some rafts.

Failing finding a replacement, then you may need to cut them out, and glue in another type of valve, like Leafield C7s.

A little off topic, but ...

I got a Maxxon MS265 as a present without the wooden floor. Can any of you help me with the exact sizes so I can make a set myself?

TIA, Pieter
