How To: Inflate a Raft (2:00)

You've invested in a good boat; you want to make sure it lasts a long time. Proper inflation techniques go a long way toward protecting the raft's seams and the baffles between chambers from strain and damage. In this video, Josh Gile, NRS Repairs, goes over steps for pumping up to recommended levels while keeping equal air pressure on both sides of each internal baffle. It's simple stuff, but doing it right is important boat longevity insurance.

One of the great things about inflatable rafts, catarafts, kayaks and SUP boards is that when not in use they can be deflated, taking up very little storage space. In this video the NRS Repairs crew gives you the tips and techniques to minimize stress on seams and material while they're being folded and tucked away.

    How long does the NRS E-120 take to inflate?
    Asked on 4/1/2015 by Chuck from Falmouth, Va

      Chuck, the length of time depends on the type of pump(s) you use. The slickest way of doing it is to put most of the air in with a battery-powered pump like the NRS Blast, Item # 80060.01, then top it off to full pressure with a hand pump. That would take 10 minutes or less. Just using a hand pump could take 15-30 minutes, depending on the size and volume of the pump.

      Yes, it has attachment points for a third thwart; hover over the boat photo and the enlarged image will show them. The extra thwart is Item # 85011.01.

    What is the diameter of the thwarts in the E-120? Is the fully inflated thwart large enough and supportive enough so that the top of the thwart is level with the top of the tube, enabling the paddler to comfortably keep half his weight on the thwart and half on the tube, without creating a painful side to side curve in the lower spine?

      Wood, the thwarts are 10" in diameter. Take a look at the side view of the raft in the Larger Images & More Views link you'll spot beneath the product page photo. It shows the thwart is level with the top of the side tubes.
