air pressure (guide for a beginner)

I just bought: Sevylor Tahiti Fishing/Hunting Inflatable Kayak: Sports & Outdoors

2 man inflatable kayak

i want to know what the air pressure is supposed to be for optimal use. what kind of pressure guage should i buy for this?

i bought an electric car air pump and will be getting a hand pump to "finish off the pumping". someone said towards the end you should use an hand pump to fill it up more.

i also bought two kayak paddles... 96" each

any other suggestions we are ganna take this baby out on a small river in missouri this weekend.

Why not get one of the dual action electric pumps such as a Bravo BTP12, it will inflate your boat to the correct pressure as it has a piston pump which takes over for the last part.
You can keep the hand pump for emergencies.

Have a look at the instruction manual here which seems to cover most models...
