The guy I bought it off had it listed on eBay & sold it only for the lad to not pay after a week, claimed he no longer wanted it. It was then listed on gumtree when I phoned to make enquiry it was in same village as my parents & only 15mins away. Viewed , saw potential scored a bargin but I'm adding bits & bobs, desperate to get new console / jockey seats

On a sib it's more important to have all tubes and keel well inflated to it's factory recommended pressures once on water to have needed rigidity to perform as expected, on a rib it's less important as the hull is the part that floats, on deep V hulls, tubes barely touches water so 2.5-3.0 psi will be suficient.

Happy Boating

Halkey Roberts Compressor Attachment

I checked them out seems I have Halkey Roberts valves. I don't have any experience with them but I am even more confused how I can use an air compressor with those, save me having to buy an electric inflation pump for 200

Due to the dimensions of my garage I am going to have to deflate and inflate the tubes each time I want to come in and out of the garage so I def need some way other than manual.
