Bombard Aerotec 380 user manual

Hi
Does anyone know how to get hold of a user manual for the above.
Or iof there is one available for download.

Have tried email to Bombard but 2 weeks on no reply.
Not sure how the air floor goes in and dont want to mess it up.

All the best
Mike

Inflate the sponsons first, wet the base/hull a bit for lubrication(i allways found it easier for the airdeck to settle properly when wet inside) then lay the airdeck in and loosely strap it in so the straps are only just through the buckles by about 2 inches, fully inflate one side of the air deck, then fully inflate the other side, when it starts to take shape, pick the bow up and shake it about a bit - keep doing this untill its fully inflated, then pull the straps up till they stop-not too tight though.
I dont think this method is in the manual, but i allways found it to be the best way.
If you havnt allready got one-i highly reccomend the the Bravo 12bst hp inflator pump-its the only 12v pump that will inflate the floor to max pressure-and very quickly too,well worth the money- heres a link

Bravo 12 BST Pump

Hi Mike,

Just read your post re inflating your boat, and the Bravo BST 12 Pump. I agree entirely with easyrider about the Bravo pump, but you might be interested to know that I have just imported some of these pumps with a built-in battery so you can inflate you boat away from the car, without carrying a powerpack about.

I could not find them for sale anywhere in the UK, so determined to have one I ended up buying a few to resell here. I have posted an ad in the Bits and Peices forum, but feel free to ask any questions. Also if you search on eBay for Bravo 12 it will be the first listing to come up. I have listed them as 149.95 plus P&P but will discount to RIBnet members if they buy direct from me, and not through ebay. Hope this helps, as everyone i have spoken to so far doesnt even know these integrated battery pumps exist!

All the best, Paul

Hi Codprawn,

The manufacturers of these pumps, reccomend that with both these and the wired pumps be used for 15 minutes, then allowed to cool down for 30 minutes.

I therefore dont know how long it would last as it would probably knacker the pump, but what i do know is that I have a Honwave 3.8 Air-V floor, and it inflates that to full pressure (Tubes to 0.25 Bar and floor to 0.8 Bar effortlessly within the 15 minutes, sucks all the air out to pack away after use, and re-inflates when I get home to rinse off.

Hope that answers your question.

Thanks for your interest.

Thanks for that Dino, although buy the time youve been to Maplins, paid 30.99 for a 7Ah battery, and messed around with the connections, & squeezed it into the bag, I for one would rather have an all-in-one unit that easy to use, easy to charge.
