What is the working air pressure, and do I need a pressure gauge?

It is not necessary to have an air pressure gauge to inflate boats. The boat tubes are equipped with Safety valves that will prevent over-inflation. In general, when you feel that boat tubes/floor are hard to the touch, and it becomes difficult to pump any more air in, that means that the boat is ready.


I am a heavy person, over 250 lbs. How can I minimize pressure on the plywood seat and seating straps in order to avoid excessive wear?

Coolers can also serve as dry storage containers. When a boat […]

What does “maximum motor capacity mean”? What motor rating do I need to put the boat on plane?

Max O/B Motor means: the maximum power outboard motor that can be safely used to plane a boat loaded to the maximum capacity on normal water surface conditions.

Air starts escaping from the valve immediately after I remove air pump. My boat starts loosing air after few hours. What is wrong?

The valve has a special pushpin inside. This pushpin has two positions, both up and down. When it is pressed in the down position, air will escape. If you turn the pushpin in any direction it will pop up. This will lock air inside and prevent it from escaping through the valve. Before inserting the […]
