What current does the high pressure pump draw? Is it croc clips or cigarette lighter socket? How long is the lead?

I have power, but its fixed in the boat, not "portable"...

OK - in that case I should be able to get it to my battery if needed. I would just add that if its essential you probably want to have another option (if I have a problem and have to turn back etc). I'm guessing you have a footpump and can make it work but not at the proper pressure?

Hi Sunsport..I will have a manual hand pump. I dont need high pressure so dont have an electric pump..but Im sure you would get by with the hand pump in an emergency ?

I think a few of us will have manual pumps so unless hugely unlucky there should be no sinking... Theoretically my foot pump can get to 0.8 bar...

It's the one came with my Honwave... Sure it's no different to a Bravo foot pump

Sunsport I will most likely take my Bravo 12v pump and a manual hand version too.
Not forgetting an assortment of 28 ah and 2 x 7ah batteries.
The 7ah are easily removable and more than capable of topping up Sib tubes.
Dinnae stress.
I will be carrying a box of firewood too - last year only Poly and Gurnard contributed to the fire so I must make ammence.

Just checking my timings... we're planning to depart at 10am? So if i arrive at Largs just before 9am that should give plenty of time for setting up, packing etc.

Thanks...
