Their numax leisure / marine range have 3 yr warranty and as well as good deep cycle ability have very high CCA for starting use.
Nice one Daniel

Awesome work! Can't wait to meet you, I'll get there for 10am but no rush for you, the traffic isn't great due to the flooding and all that.

See you tomorrow

We have now completed the refurbishment of the original tubes, with all new rubbing strakes, handles etc,and a couple of images are attached. If anyone is interested in them as replacement tubes, please let me know. The price and payment terms remain as below

After this is done the tubes would certainly provide many years of useful life. So what I would like to do is the following:-

Restore the tubes to a good condition with new strakes etc, and then offer them to anyone for a sum of 1,500.00 plus VAT. 750.00 of this will need to be paid direct to the Just Giving web site for this project(This therefore avoids paying VAT on this part of the payment). and the balance of 750.00 paid to Henshaw Inflatables Ltd. This part of it will attract VAT at 20%.
I will also include sufficient fabric and Bostik for fitting the tubes. (If the purchaser wanted us to fit we would do this at a nominal charge)

The charity therefore benefits to the tune of another 750.00

Of course if the purchaser wants to increase their donation to Just Giving just do so!!
