Doesn't seem bad to me for what it is?

Given 15 amp fuses blow their rating is probably close (it isn't in their interest to incorrectly spec it surely?)

I have an inline watt meter good to 150 amps here so I'll put it on for a nosey next time I'm at boat.
Yes i admit i did fail my physics o level so maybe was a bad observation ,however i do think if your just going to tube pressures your watt meter may reveal no real strain for the device and therefore considerably less current draw than the max ,if however your inflating paddle boards 15 psi or similar you will need lots of current ,the itiwit unit maxes at 15 amps but may not be as quick however have seen good reports for £40

The bravo has twin motors from memory drawing 16 amps together the circuit should be capable of carrying 20 amps to prevent heat.

This any good

Hi Xk59D, Needing a similar idea for my Searider rebuild I was lucky enough to by a suitable IP rated unit for a tractor in Italy on holiday - at a local market. Try one of the UK tractor agents: the units are well made, water and bump-proof. Iain

Nicely found, now we are getting there.

Will check out the tractor thing too.

I'd suggest powering it via a relay so you could turn it on an off via a standard console switch?
