Pressure on the floor of honwave T32 IE

Hello,

I recently bought a honwave sib and according to the instructions on the boat manufacter I should pressurize the inflatable floor to 0,8 bar, but I noticed that with this pressure the floor doesn't seems hard enough.

Does anyone have a boat like these ? How do you pressurize the boat, with a manometer to check the pressure on the tubes or you fill it till you can with the manual bomb that comes with the boat.

I will put some photos soon ...

Thanks

I inflate mine to 0.8 bar which is almost 12psi I think and the floor is solid I use a digital bravo 12v pump maybe your manometer is off or your losing pressure connecting it. my zodiac airfloor was only 11psi that was also solid

Thanks for the answer.

I think the problem is that I inflate it to +- 1 bar, but when using the gauge that comes with the boat to check the pressure I probably lose more than 0,2 connecting the gauge ...

I will buy that bravo digital bomb to assure the correct values .

Beerbelly,

I will buy some Bravo pump, but i dont know wich one to choose, i got these two models:

Hinchador Electrico Bravo 12

Bravo Bomba Eléctrica BP 12 [Bravo Bomba Eléctrica BP 12] - €85.00 : Watertech Kayaks!, Loja de Canoagem

Could you advise me wich one to choose ?

I noticed that one only goes to 1(14.5 Psi)bar and the other till 300 mbar (4.4 psi)

But as i nerd to inflate the tubes of the boat till 2,25 Bar i will still need the manual one too

Hi, i got mine here info@arts-outdoors.de, for 169 euros plus 10 euros shipping, i bought the wall plug as well(15 euro) but they only have euro plug chargers so might be better off getting a UK version, great service and i happy with the pump, dont forget you will need the HP version for inflatable hull

Hi, should add, I have the BST 12 HP with its own 12v battery expensive but worth it, I don't want to insult you but are you mixing your bars with your psi, and these pumps suck the air right out so you can get your sib back in the bag!

Hi,

Im not mixing bar with psi... In europe we use more bar than psi...

0,25 Bar = 3,6 Psi
0,8 Bar = 11,6 psi

The pump i ordered goes till 1 bar = 14,5 psi, so i think it will work for me
