mine is 11.2 psi too I don't think my bravo pump would go much higher tho as the last half a pound of pressure and the pump slows down and seems as if 11.2 is as much as it can go to

Thanks for that everybody, never realised how vital it is to inflate the floor correctly to ensure performance.
I have a new Excel SL260 and on the 3 occasions I have been out I have not been paying much attention to it, will now
Thanks again..

As above Excel high pressure air deck is exactly that. Stiff as a board and thats what is required.

Snap on your outfit, Excel 330 + Tohatsu 9.8

Oh man, no instructions then?!

That the thrust board - no board, no workie. It fits under the floor and above the inflatable keel. You DO have an inflatable keel? It will have an odd pressure too.

Does anyone use a bravo stirrup pump for their air floor?

I can get to the point where I have to push down with all of my weight on the pump and air goes in a tiny bit at a time.

The gauge only shows the pressure on the down pump and I can't really read it. Is it likely to be about the right air pressure at this point?

It dependes on which model you have, they can deliver anywhere from 3 to 11psi.
