Are you planing complete deflation, inflation 2,3 times per week or just to top tubes each time. Will the rib be living anchored, moored, whatever ? or taken out when boating has finished ? Being a rib, don't need real hard tubes as if it were a sib to perform well. Morning Inflation to 2.5 psi in plain summer will be enough, probably will end at 3.0 psi at mid day.
Other nice hand pump that pumps good air volume for inflation or topping is the Bravo 4 Alu, it's double pump that inflates both ways, you can modify internally to work just when stroking down, inflates real sweet, comes with a gauge that attaches to upper hose. Could combine both, one for full chamber inflation, other to top...
