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:what length oars would you recommend with this boat?Asked on 4/4/2013 by Knight Rider
A:A 60"W frame is ideal for the E-142. Oar length is somewhat personal preference, but you'll want them in the 8'-9' range.Answered on 4/4/2013 by Clyde from NRS

Comments about NRS E-142 Self-Bailing Rafts:
Class four solo rowing
Truly sweet boat
Friends are jealous
So, the shy thing is when its rolled up, a thwart valve pushes through the floor and has created a leak in the floor. plugging the floor prv helps, but i feel this could be corrected
