**LX, Sport, LX-R & Predator Series all come with a 5 year warranty on all PVC & TPU welded tube seams!!


Most inflatable boats require the transom, floor, air decks / drop stich, fittings and fixtures to be glued onto the tubes, so when it comes to the seams we have chosen to use a Thermally Bonded Seam (welded) on all tubes and a glued seam on the air deck floors.
