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.

Comments about NRS RIKEN Seminole I Inflatable Kayak:
NRS/Riken Seminole II – After exhaustive research and trying out a number of boats we quickly narrowed it down to either the MaverIK or the Seminole IK's (inflatable kayak). The criteria was to find an IK that could haul one person and enough gear for 5 - 6 days comfortably, would paddle predictably (same loaded or not) and track well, could be used as a double for a day trip and was made of Hypalon and not PVC. We paddled friends MaverIK I & II and some other boats (Aire, Hyside, Soar, Sea Eagle) but ultimately went with the Seminole II sight unseen, because the MaverIK I &II paddled very differently loaded down or empty, if our goal was a durable day play boat we'd of chosen the MaverIK I instead.
Ultimately we took a big gamble and ordered 2, of the 10' 10" Seminole II w/ 2 removable thwarts each sight-unseen. After 2 trips if I had to summarize our experience into one word it would be ecstatic, simply put the Seminole II has exceeded ALL our expectations for; maneuverability, stability, durability, functionality and predictability in how it paddles in rough water. Loaded down the Seminole paddle's better (tracks and is more stable in rough water) than any of the boats we paddled loaded (MaverIK's included). Thanks NRS crew for offering this wonderful craft in your lineup of world class boats. (P.s, thanks Kyle for all your help!)

Q:Can the thwart be moved?Asked on 7/4/2016 by Craig from Tigard OR

Q:Does the Seminole have a Leafield A6 Pressure Relief Valve to protect the floor?
What approximate pressure should the tubes and floor be pressurized to? Would it require a "high pressure" pump? What pumps would you recommend for this IK?
What are the "Best uses" for this inflatable kayak (IK)?
Why does this boat have an added surcharge, when much larger and heavier boats and similarly sized and weighted boats in its class do not?Asked on 11/5/2014 by Ricster from Somewhere in Colorado
A:Yes, there's an A6 PR valve. We recommend 2.5 psi for all chambers of this boat. Any of the hand pumps can inflate to that pressure. If you're looking for just one pump, for put-in inflation and compact design for take-along, something like the K-Pump 100, Item # 80072.01, is a great choice. The Seminole is a good all-around IK, stable for the beginner, roomy for overnighters, plenty capable in whitewater. All the IKs incur a surcharge because they're oversize for shipping. With any of the boats that are offered in more than one color you have to click on the preferred color before the surcharge shows up. Give us a call to discuss the pros and cons of different models, we love to talk boats! 800.635.5202Answered on 11/5/2014 by Clyde from NRS
