Seago tube/floor pressures

Don't suppose you've got an owners manual that tells you the pressure for the airfloor have you? I don't know what pressure mine is supposed to be pumped up to.

<note. Seago airfloor specific question ONLY as it's got an inflatable keel UNDER it.>

Nos ... We've got one of these. I emailed Seago a while back with the same question. The reply was was 2.5psi all chambers.

I've got the owners manual if you want a scan.

Yes please! Didn't think it was normal airdeck pressures

Would the scan attach to a post so others can see it?

HERE ... If there's a better way of doing it other than over three posts, let me know. Better still, one of those "fixt it for ya" admin trickeries

So, here's a pressure summary:

1. From the Page 6 table - tube pressure 2.2psi
2. From the Page 7 instructions - tube pressure 2.25psi, air floor 3.0 psi
3. From a Seago email to me - all chambers 2.5psi

Well, that clears it up nicely

Not if you compare the price I paid... It's only for pootling round rivers and the odd trip ashore.

Thanks Leapy-much appreciated.

I'll try the floor at 2.2psi, can always up it to 3psi on the pump if needed.


I'll see if I can 'FIFY'

Nah. I'll have you know this is a quality ship. If you'd read the instructions like wot Nos and I did before purchase you'd have noticed it had a section talking of pumping. None of that over inflated out of breath pass me the defibrillator Quicksilver crap here, it says. We designed ship so you get boating pleasure in sea, not heart attack in A&E. Suitable for use of those with previous for blowing up li-lo's and beach crocodiles

Yiz the one bin 'ad :wink:

Those stated pressures are vay low. Inflating tubes at 2.2 and boating in cold water will have same effect as riding on 2 large marshmellows. Will not only rock, but will roll too..

Top that sib to minimum 3.0 psi once floating on water, keel included after some minutes rest for overall pressure to staibilize. If it's a air deck inflate to 10-12 psi. Sib/engine combo will perform much nicely.

Happy Boating

I suspect the deck will burst at far less than 12psi.
