Now we have the bravo pump with the built in battery it'll be coming with us on the boat. Was very noticeable last week how much the pressure dropped off when the boat was immersed in cold water.

Bit noisy though aren't they? I haven't used it yet but I ran it last night for a few minutes and I could see that being an annoyance in certain situations. Will be keeping the Bravo handpump.

Off to buy an auxilary engine this weekend in preparation for some excursions out to sea!

Dunno about the inflation process but I thot Bombard Aerotecs had self deflating tubes

Doesn't the glue peel back to let the air out of the seams as well as letting the transom fall off

Well my F-Rib certainly came equipped with that very useful no cost optional extra. I think it also came with a self flooding hull - again all at no extra cost. 😄

Just for the sake of accuracy the Aerotec tubes are all welded so last a lifetime... even once the floor has fallen out and the transom long gone there's something left to make your grp dinghy into a RIB.
