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.

Q:Do you have any videos on thwart installation?Asked on 6/22/2016 by Adrienne from TN
A:Adrienne, we don't, but it's quite simple. Examine the thwart; the top is wider than the bottom. With boat and thwart deflated, line up the slots in the end of the thwart with slots on the inside of the tube. Slide the plastic batten through the slots, with the batten's raised lip facing in to the center compartment. You can tie the cord on the batten to the holes on the patch on the thwart end; or you can tie it to the hole on the lip end of the batten, for extra security.

Q:Which end is the front? The end with the pressure relief valve or the end without>Asked on 4/5/2015 by doug from oregon
A:Doug, the shape of the boat is symmetrical, same on both ends. Many think of the end with the floor valves as the back. Outfitters who install footcups would certainly run the boat with the valves in the back. I, on the other hand run my E-150 with the valves toward the front; because I mostly do multiday trips and I want those valves accessible, rather than buried under gear. So, boater's choice; you decide.Answered on 4/5/2015 by Clyde from NRS
