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:We are a family of five looking for a raft for western rivers and plan on moving toward a grand canyon journey one day. Am I unrealistic that I can get it all done for five on a 15 ft raft? Do I need bigger as we don't fit the normal sized family of four boat? Thanks for any info, especially any families of five and your experiences.
Cheers! MarkAsked on 12/2/2013 by Firefly from Santa Cruz
