Vanguard A6 valve question
I have a used Vanguard 14' SB, and noticed the floor seems a bit softer than some other manufacturer's boats. I have checked every inch of the floor, and no, I don't have any leaks. What I did find is I have a blue dot Leafield A6 value, which should be a 2# valve. Holly rates her floor to 2.9#, so the valve could be the problem. But, I have also spoken to some other people, and their reaction is "it's an I-beam floor, they don't take pressure well".
I got the boat used from a outfitter, who uses Vgards as mostly a paddle boat on Shoshone, and who may/may not have replaced the valve. Holly is reportedly in Europe, Clavey isn't sure, no one at the outfitter remembers replacing the valve on a boat they sold five years ago.
So, do any Vgard 1402 owners know what A6 valve their boats have, and is it stock, or did you replace it?
