I'd imagine they are supplied in a similar way to a complete replacement inflation valve, with a circular patch of material already attached.

When I've replaced valves like this all you do is cut around the old valve with a sharpe knife, and glue the new patch with new valve in the middle over the hole. It can be a bit awkward, but having done it a few times it doesn't scare me any more.

If the PRV didn't come with a patch already it would of course be easy to cut one and fit the valve to it before gluing it down over a cut hole.

That's what I understand - as described by Nasher they are supplied on a patch and you stick it over a hole. Installation of the valve without this would require access inside the tube which means opening up a seam.

I had 5 retro fitted by Henshaw and they have a way of doing it without using a patch so they look like they were fitted at new.

18 ea fitted I think it cost me.

Blimey - they were something like 45 each as an option on a new boat when I was looking at one a few years back so thats good!
