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:I'm just curious how come the specs are basically the same as the E-150, but the center is only 43" and overall max frame length is only 78"? Why wouldn't it be 45" and atleast 94" if not 96"Asked on 6/25/2014 by GT from Montana
A:Good questions, GT. Regarding the center compartment width (boat width 7' or 84" minus two tube diameters of 20") should equal 44". The fact that one of these boats measured 45" and the other 44" is due to them being handmade. Even though they're built by skilled craftsmen who've made many, many boats, there's slight variation in dimensions. The difference in flat area length is due to a difference in construction. The E-150 has five-panel bow and stern, all of the same 20" diameter. The 152 has seven-panel bow and stern, diminishing to 18". The rise in the 152 starts earlier, thus shortening the flat area.
