    Does the Tributary 14' come fitted with the same type splash guard flaps that are found on the Aire 143 rafts?? The dealer explained that the lace in floors are excellent, but they can be fairly wet with water splashing thru the forward floor...thus the splash guard flaps on the Aire boats.

      Yes, AIRE reports that the Tributary rafts have the same splash guard feature as the AIRE rafts.

    I bought this boat along woth an AIRE double pump. When I used the pump none of the adapters work with this valve. I then went to the local raft store and they provided a screw in adapter and this also does not work/fit. What adapter do I need to make this pump work so I can air up my boat. Thanks.

      I use a clear piece of tubing that I fit over the pump nozzle and than shape the tubing with a grinder to fit the valve opening.This is a very fast way of topping off your raft.

      Richard, your boat has Leafield B7 valves. The Leafield / Military Valve Adapter, Item # 38524.01, will fit the valves and should adapt to your pump.
