Do you do the same with your car tires ? The purpose of using a pressure gauge is to assure long lasting tube seals and transom free ungluing problems due to bending issues, specially if using a max engine HP rated for that sib. Will make the entire floor and side joiners to have a perfect countour tight fit inside sib. If you have not used one before, nor pretend to use one in a future, don't give light nonsense answers, the purpose of this survey is to encourage the use of them, not the opposite.

Happy Sibbing

Surely the purpose of a survey is to establish the market need not to promote a product - otherwise it is sales activity! A response that someone does not see a need or desire the purchase is just as valid as one that does - it should help you extrapolate the wider market requirement. PS - my tubes don't blow up so I don't need one!

What, for an Osculati one, they must have found out your a rib nobba! Who are TG Marine, surely not an agent for them.

I think the last time I bought one, it came via Superyacht Doc's in the Hamble, I have bought direct from Osculati in the past, but they do have a minimum order policy.

Zodiac has different type of air valves, better get the original as other gauges won't fit zodiac valves, other brands gauges, mostly comes fitted with Halker Roberts Valves adapters which are completely different.
