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 manufacurer has the biggest air tubes? Are there pro's and con? My NRS16 river has been great on local river. A tad too big & wide for Rainey Falls fish ladder. I usually have 3 on board and camping gear & food. She has served me well, a few nicks & cuts but nothing that hisses at me or bubbles much. Could a screw on cap be prone to leaking, yes_no?Asked on 2/11/2013 by wunguy from Madras, Oregon The home of school intrag
A:Hi, I'm not sure what you sort of info you're looking for with the "what manufacturer has the largest air tubes" question. Boat designers size the tubes to the intended usages of their boats and the loads they'll probably be carrying. Larger boats usually have larger tubes. Give us a call, 800.635.5202 or drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have more questions on this. Are you referring to the C7 valve cap? That is not an air-holding cap, it's meant to protect and keep water and debris off the valve inner parts. A valve leak can usually be fixed by removing the valve and cleaning the valve seat.Answered on 2/11/2013 by Clyde from NRS
