FWIW, I use a generic battery powered pump, very cheap which inflates most of the boat, then I use a foot pump to get to maximum operating psi, it may be slightly slower but it works incredibly well, and has indeed done so for years.

I'll try Pacer today.
Good luck with that... they're the most unhelpful and expensive outfit I've ever been to.

Glad I never tried that then.

Used the boat again on Saturday, pumped it up with the foot pump - it wasn't a great drama.

Managed to open up the throttle, it will just creep onto the plane with me and two young kids on board.

Still on the look out for that elusive 15-20hp outboard....

Is a Suzuki 25p 4 Stroke any good ?

Hi Peter,

Needs to be a 2 stroke due to me, and the wife, needing to carry it.

Thanks anyway.

You must have tried a different Pacer Marine. The Pacer Marine that I use is a family run business where everyone is always helpful and prices very competitive to point that when I was buying, having shopped around, it was nice to find cheapest/one of cheapest being so convenient to me. Hence, reason I suggested trying Pacer, as my battery Bravo was bought about 20 cheaper than I had found anywhere else.

I guess everyone has their own experiences, but mine is based on at least a dozen visits and not a one off where you first stumble across the janitor or youth opportunity worker.

Fare enough Ian but I live 8 miles away and have been there numerous times. They always seem too busy to serve, even if I'm the only customer and then it seems an effort. I thought it was just me but my buddy says the same thing.

Anyone looking to sell, or point me in direction of a vendor who has them in stock?

Hi, i got mine here info@arts-outdoors.de, for 169 euros plus 10 euros shipping, i bought the wall plug as well(15 euro) but they only have euro plug chargers so might be better off getting a UK version, great service and i happy with the pump, dont forget you will need the HP version for inflatable hull, hope that helps

Looks good value for money.
