SIB Pumps

Can anyone recommend a good pump for inflating an SIB?

Also, do any of them have batteries!?

I take it a car compressor won't touch it?

All help welcome.

Nooooooo!

Itiwit vs Bravo.

I'm in the Bravo corner. Yes they can be battery powered.

Car compressor chucks out high pressure but low volume. It would do it but it a) it would take forever and b) the pump might fail due to it running for too long.

High volume and low pressure is what you are after.

Another vote for Bravo...

Hi. Having thought about it I might opt for a hand pump. Finding one that has the twist and lock connection is tricky and they all state kayak/SUP but nothing described as a dinghy pump.

I've found the one below that I think will work - it also looks a good size to take on the boat with us.

What do you think?

I think you’ll be very fit by end of it, or you already are!

Looks like a nifty little pump though.

You could get a cheap-ish Sevylor pump to do the bulk of the work and then top up by hand. Good to have a “human powered” pump in the boat anyway.

I carry a hand pump (supplied with the boat) on the boat, but the electric pump is so much easier. You can set it off & get on with setting up the rest of the kit.

No issues with bravo for me, like the fact I can dial in the correct pressure and the pumps stops when it reaches the setting. I also like the fact I can use it off the boat or car battery.

My Bravo came with a two year warranty and is now three years old, still going strong.

I've not had any issues with the Sevylor pump that I use. I know a few people have, but I find it quite, quick, easy to use and accurate. Probably used it 20/25 times last year between the SIB and a kayak. Time will tell if it lasts or not!

I have one of those, bought it with the SIB. It’s not a bad little pump(so far). But being single stage it’s slooow, compared to the 2 stage HIKS. I use both pumps for blowing up the SIB. I use the seyvilor for the air floor, set it to req’d pressure & let it go. I then use the HIKS to inflate the tube compartments to the low changeover pressure. When all 3 are up to low pressure, I top up to working pressure working from bow to stern. The whole process takes around 20 mins with 2 pumps, 30 mins with one.

I had one of these for 25 years and when it finally started to leak, I bought the same. Simple to use, and for a boat up to about 3.5 metres, it doesn't take long.

This type is my backup pump I use if the battery for Bravo is flat and the one I carry when at sea.

I have the Bravo pump. The store attached the push on fitting rather than the Halkey Robert's one. I does pop out so you have to hold it on the valve, should I keep this one or swap for the HR one. Do people take the bravo pump with them when going out, with a battery, or just take a styrup pump like the one supplied with the sib
