Are they still in business?

They certainly made hypalon boats, no idea if there were any PU or PVC ones - but a quick search on the forum should give you enough to confirm just by looking at both sides of the fabric.

Air-Craft are made by Liverpool Power Boats and as far as I'm aware LPB's are still going strong . All models are Hypalon btw

So LPB are still in business then , but are not listing Air-Craft. I'm sure that they would make one if asked but the lady wanted to know what the tubes are made of and they are Hypalon .

ps sorry to the OP for assuming gender but Julie is a or was a female name I do not want to cause any offence
