maxxon 265 inflatable boat valves....

hey guys...hoping someone might be able to help....I have an old maxxon 260 inflatable...it has a red spray cover up front, says it has 500kg limit, takes 4 people. It has no valves in it at all. They appear to have been unscrewed and taken away, so the female part of the valves are still there within the tubes, but the screw in parts are missing...I am struggling to get hold of any replacements, and to be honest cant afford to spend to much on it, but would like to renovate it for my 2 year old and I to mess about on.

I dont suppose anyone has one of these, or any other maxxon inflatables that has valves that may fit?...If anyone has one that they are scrapping I would be happy to buy the valves from them!! Hope someone can help! cheers!!

Nearer than you think, 'coz we're actually nr. Lamanva on the way to Mawnan.

Nope, no Maxxon dealers here.

Perhaps you can put in a set of Leafield C7 valves. You may need to modify the area where the old valves were. Post some photos showing where the valves were located on the tubes and then it will be easier to determine if this is feasible. Do you know what material the tubes are made of?

hey guys...thanks for replies.....sorry for slow reply, been waiting to get partner back from my wife!!........have taken some picks, as you can see below, and the internal thread is around 30mm...plus or minus a mill or two, quite hard to measure! anyone know of a cheap valve that would fit the thread?...I dont think I can afford to change the valves completely, as there are three of them, and the price would soon stack up. Saw this http://www.ronhalemarine.co.uk/super...moveable_Valve but the guy had none in stock to measure the thread for me. Hope someone can help! cheers
