Well done Firstrib!
Nice to see you reaping the rewards of your labour.
That's impressive fitting all that into a ford Ka.
My similar sized Honwave 3.5ae and Tohatsu 20hp 4 stroke used to go in the boot of my Mondeo.
Bought a little box trailer the built a full sized boat trailer.
Still love the portability of a go anywhere boat I a bag so bought a little Seago Eco 260 with Suzuki 2.2hp 2 stroke and Suzuki 2.5hp four stoke for propulsion.
Very addictive and rewarding hobby you have embarked on.

Fair play you must be some Tetris grand master! Looks like a tidy little setup and that motor looks really clean. Should have plenty of oomph even when you do figure out how to a fit a 3rd passenger in. If looking for a an iOS chat plotter look at a an iPad mini with 4g sim and a lifewotsit case battery is much better and screen easier to read Han phone I think. Also have you got the rya safetrex app? Could be useful on your trips.

Hi Fenlander, your advice and encouragement has made this all possible. Thames today! More photo later.

Get those teenagers out of bed!

HELP - Thames did not happen! Bravo BST 12 HP inflated boat only to first low pressure, next high power setting did not kick in. Tried several times, all valves, just on the lilo setting! Boat on quay side by car, lifejackets on but couldn't get going, footpump had missing attachment so couldn't default to that.


Pump is brand new, worked well yesterday. Perhaps it got a bit wet but I doubt it. Any ideas for fixing or should I return via Ebay?

Very frustrating!

Is yours the digital one? If so did it show the elevated pressure when you pressed the button but just not pump to it?

Nip along to Chas Newens for the pump adaptor so you have backup.

Hi, it's the manual one with the dial setting, all worked fine yesterday. What could be wrong? No cutting in a pneumatic drill sound at all.

Well if you know for sure it was set correctly and you waited long enough to give the second stage a chance to cut in then it seems it must be faulty.

I happened upon a rather worrying sentence in the manual, it said "never lower the pressure setting (on the manometer) while the pump is in operation or this will irreparably damage the pump"...

I assume all your seals pump/pipe/boat are not leaking? I noticed with the adaptor I got to connect Bravo to Honwave isn't a tight fit and can leak air.

Shame you had to bail out...
