You are not wrong - water skis and knee boards are fine on mine but inflatable toys are excluded.

And Now for the Rub........

If I was feeling less than charitable, I might say that I have found out why the doughnut, ringo or what have you was given to me. 1) it is bloody big, and 2) the floor bladder has a leak. However, as those that know me will testify, I usually allow the benefit of the doubt
The floor bladder appears to be made from a PVC material. Is there any repair method, glueing or otherwise, that stands a creditable chance of permanency? My suspicion is that the floor bladder has had it, but on the chance that someone might know better.....................
