- How to inflate the boat ?
Inflate the boat only after the assembling is complete. Every inflatable boat always has some inflatable parts like a multi-chamber tube, an inflatable floor (air deck), an inflatable keel and the order to inflate them is very important:
The tube always includes some chambers, separated by flexible partitions. The order inflating tube chambers is quite important. The general rule is: FROM THE REAR TO THE BOW - inflate the rear chambers first, the bow chamber should be last.
- Boats with wooden floorboards and inflatable keel: TUBE => KEEL
- Boats with an air deck and an inflatable keel: TUBE => AIRDECK => KEEL
Inflate all chambers except the bow chamber to ONLY 90% OF NOMINAL PRESSURE. Then fill the final bow chamber to NOMINAL PRESSURE as the partitions of the tube are elastic and the inflation of last front chamber to nominal pressure will allow the partitions to sit in a neutral position. As a result the last chamber inflating will increase pressures in all the chambers to the nominal level automatically. Pay special attention to close all the valves with plugs properly and tight without wrap after you inflate the boat.
