Pressure Gauge Purchase Survey

Hola UK sibbers and ribbers as well, just to better the sib's peformance of members of this communeety, there is the possibility that John stocks some nice and relaible state of art pressure gauges that have personally recommended in Ribnet. They are made by a reputed & experienced Italian marine Company.

John would like to know how many sibbers/ribbers would be intersted in purchasing them to evaluate how many to order, shipping costs to UK, the larger the quantity, the better user final priced. This manometer comes with standard Halkey Roberts Valves adapter. If your system is different, you can remove the adapter and make yourself a adapter that fits your valve system, anyway it's a excellent start. Very easy and accurate to read outside or inside sib.

If interested, post your vote for one here, to evaluate quantity required.

Happy Sibbing

I would be up for a trial of one, looked at the boat show and did not find one. Was told ages ago what pressure to run my tubes but without checks it is a nightmare.

I just whack the tubes with my fist... if it bounces off they don't need air if it doesn't bounce off they do.

So what pressure should the tubes be then? I've always gone for the fist approach, but have been concerned when going from winter to summer and part deflate my tubes after every coldish day out in antisipation of a hot sunny day
