Xm 235 rib

Hi, I hope I'm in the right place.

I have an old XM 235 inflatable bought in the mid 90's. Problem is I have lost the valves so I can't inflate it. The valves would need to be fairly shallow and screw in. I can't find a suitable replacement and have spoken to XM in the UK who say that this model has been discontinued for sometime and they can't help (they don't know what the valves were! Mind you the company has been bought out since).

Has anyone got a similar model who could help? The boat can take a 4hp motor and has a slatted floor. I would need 3 valves - 1 on each inner side of the boat towards the rear and 1 for the cushion/seat that wedges in.

Any help at all would be greatly appeciated and apologies if this is not the right place to ask this.

Why do the valves need to be shallow? And are you talking about internal to the tubes, or a low profile exterior?
