Ashbys of Kingsbridge are open 7 days a week for customer collections. Please call and arrange a convenient time and day for collection. Ashbys are happy to hold a boat ready for later collection if a non-refundable deposit is paid in advance. This is ideal for purchasers who wish to secure a boat prior to coming down to Devon on holiday at a later point.

Important Care Points
When inflated remember that air expands when warm (imagine being inside a sealed plastic bag on a dull day and it will get very warm inside). So when you pump any inflatable boat up always leave it so you can still squeeze and deform it. If it is drum tight, it has no expansion left and under the wrong conditions may rupture. If you are going to leave it on the the beach in the sun, let some air out if required and pump up again later. Although some boats are supplied with a pressure gauge in the box, don’t 100% rely on it as they can be inaccurate —– give the boat a squeeze and on a warm day monitor it with a squeeze every now and then.
Pack away dry and do not pile heavy or sharp objects on it. Like any plastic avoid frost, high temps and sunlight when in storage.
IF YOU ARE GOING ON HOLIDAY WITH THE BOAT
When its new please get the boat out before going on holiday and practice blowing it up before you are under pressure to get on the water. This will allow you to ask us any questions or resolve any issues before you really need it and in plenty of time.
Please email all issues to us for a quick response
