Cool idea -

my one question is, bearing in mind all you need is the sun to come out / go behind a cloud and the pressure will change slightly - or assuming you just checked toob pressure on the trailer and then launch, is such an accurate gauge really necessary?

Seeing as you manafacture tubes, I would hope you would be using something more accurate than a tyre guage.
I don't think this will set the inflatable boat manafacturers world alight, it was aimed at someone who just wants to check there tube pressures.
I am sure there are many who can guage with an educated slap if there pressures are right, but there are some ( me included) who can't.
If you find it hard to guage pressures, and like the idea of this, have a go.
If you don't have a problem guaging pressure, or manafacture boats, don't.

How many Ribnet members does it take to change a lightbulb?


Half a dozen to debate the merits of changing it in the first place, another half dozen eccentric light bulb fanciers to argue over the oxygen content of the wire filament......and one who just goes ahead and does it.

Job's a goodun!

Thanks guys.
It might be a bit naff, but I wanted to post something which might help others, instead of just taking knowledge of the forum as I normally do.
