Finally out of the box

I have finally managed to get our SIB out of its box and inflated. Tried on the OBM and all fits well. The only issue is that the Manometer that came with it is knackered but I will arrange to change it or just get another one.

I hope nothing. Its the manometer that came with the inflatable thats at fault. When I inflated the tubes to the recommended 0.25bar using the pump pressure gauge, on checking with the supplied pressure gauge it read 0.10bar, less than half of that of the pump. I trust the pump as I tried another manual pressure gauge and got a more accurate reading. I have ordered a new gauge so hopefully all will be good soon.

Tube inflation is most important on a SIB. always better GAZZ0322 to be sure. Especially when a pressure gauge isn't too expensive.

Only managed to get out once this year stigomery with work/family commitments.... I'm staying in the Lake District this weekend so might get out on Windermere but it's forecast 22mph winds and 3.2m sibs don't like it

Hopefully your using your sib more
