Broken zip

Post by slurch » Tue Jun 17, 2008 11:47 am

I have had my convertible for just over a year, and love the way it behaves in the water. However last week whilst on holiday on Islay (Scotland) the puller on the zip used to attach the deck to the outer cover broke. Naturally it was the side with the puller fixed to the boat rather than the deck. Is it possible to repair/ replace the zip or do I need to try and get hold of a complete new outer cover? Any suggestions would be useful. :cry:

Just to let you all know, AE have been able to supply a new slider and instructions on how to fit it. So all is not lost. Good customer services deserves all the praise one can give.

Thanks AE and I look forward to many more trips in the Convertible.

:D

Same issue as SLURCH. The puller part of the zipper "slider" broke. Is there still a kit available for this problem? If not, any suggestions? There is always string tied in a loop.
