Thats a bit harsh, I know his sense of humour is a tad "unique" at times, but he hardly deserves condemning to the depths with a weighted buoyancy aid!

In addition I have a small bag of ground gear and whatever task appropriate kit I need.

Anyway, the Pelicase is full and I think I need to add a tiny adjustable spanner and a screwdriver or two. Any (useful) thoughts?
Just hope that Boat Mad guys done look at this thread they already have enough ammunition to refer to us all as wanabee Bear Gryllsisis (sp)

The big cylinder is for initial inflation onshore - it looks a bit Heath Robinson but actually inflates up to the 11psi max without leaks. It means that I can fill the boat without hunching over or moving the kit about too much. The fact that it cost me exactly nothing was a big plus It will fill the boat to working pressure about four times.

The little one is the onboard kit and connects to the gauge and adaptor carried in the Pelicase. It holds about 90 litres and it's fine for topping off the tubes or airdeck if required. In the event of a total deflation, I would need to blow the section like a balloon before adding the final pressure. That's a 0.4L cylinder and the associated fitting is from an old BCD.

TBH, if the boat was bigger and had a hard deck, I'd just pack a pump....

Very good

Although I'm keeping mine inflated, I lose quite a bit of air through the prv's when sat on the trailer in 30 degrees, it is very black after all.

What with the main tubes, speed tubes and keel there's a fair bit of pumping to do after every launch. I was thinking a small bottle with a reg and adaptor/gauge as per the recent thread just for topping up.

I might even keep an eye out for a fast inflation kit since I've got all the proper valves for it. I'm guessing then that a small pony bottle would keep her topped up for a good while
