I suppose I could blow it up with a car pump and then to deflate it I could roll on it. That would get the air out.

But seriously folks (now we know he's kidding) I do like to stand and watch the thing going up to the sound of an electric motor rather than the sound of me puffing and panting.

It seems that the blow is no problem, it's the suck that is the difficult part.

Anyone care to tell me if there was a "punch-up" - I've been busy all day so haven't kept my eye on things?

Luv 'n' hugs

Brian,

Keith's Quicksilver has a microwave installed under the engine's hood (tinywave is the correct word). Needless to say that there is a cigarrette / pipe lighter.

He he he he he

Charlie (my mate with the big workshop next to my house in Scotland) just telephoned. He's repaired my boat pump. Clever sod he is, and THEY said that there were no servicable parts.

Still I'm going to puy another of the 12.00 car pumps just to see if it would work.

Keith (all suck and puff) Hart

PS Davison, yes I said 'pU ff'.

Try:

www.towsure.co.uk

they have quite a few different pumps in their catalogue. Cheap aswell. Unfortunately they don't sell poofs though! It's not that kind of web-site.

Be careful in Towsure Keith it can get addictive. There is a lot of good stuff in the shop.

Hi folks

Out of curiosity I adapted the car tyre pump just to see if it would work. It doesn't. Whilst the pressure is very hight the volume is so low that after 10 minutes of pumping there was hardly any air in the tubes. At this stage the pump was about to blow up so I gave it up as a bad job!

Well, at least I know for sure now.
