Inflatable Boat User Manual

When inflating, we kindly suggest you had better use a foot pump (it should be a high pressure air pumper).Please firstly inflate the air chamber with half of the whole pressure, then inflate it to the final work pressure!
Note:
(1)If one air chamber has been inflated with the work pressure, but the other air chamber has not been inflated, thus it will lead a great damage to the diaphragm between two chambers.

(2)The chamber can’t stand with high pressure. Because the inflatable boat always has been put under the sun shine, so the hot air will lead the strength of air pressure (1 ℃ can add 0.004 bar to the pressure). On the contrary, the lower temperature will lead less pressure.
Normal work pressure:
float: 0.25 bar
Keel: 0.35 bar

Automatic drainage valve
For all types of inflatable boats, except the leisure boat, there will be an automatic drainage valve at the bottom of the transom in each boat. When taking off the plug of the automatic drainage valve, the automatic drainage system can make inside boat water discharged automatically by drainage valve. However, the outside water can not follow into the inside boat! Therefore, when you drag the boat into the sea and are ready for sailing, please make sure to take off the plug of the automatic drainage valve! Above all, it is very important to clear the automatic drainage valve, in case of the block for dirt.

Dragging boat
For all types of inflatable boats, except the leisure boat, there will be 3 drag rings in each boat. When you are dragging, you had better tie up all the three drag rings together, which can make each ring stand with equal pressure. During the dragging, there should be no loading goods in the boat. When dragging during the bad weather, you had better use more drag ropes. The selection for strength of dragging rope can be decided by the type of boat and weather condition.

The low air pressure in the inflatable bag
Since this inflatable boat is made according to a specific standard, within the 24 hours, the volume of leaking air will not exceed the 20% of the whole air inside the boat. If the volume of leaking air exceed 20%, please do the following examinations:
1. Check all of air valve is tightly twisted.
2. Check all of air valves are clean
3. Check whether the hull is damaged
4. Check the connection gap between the hulls
5. put some soap bubble on the hull and examine the leaking position.
Where it has bubble, that place must be leaking.
Due to different temperature, it will lead the pressure to be higher or lower.

Leaking water in the boat
1. Check the automatic drainage valve is working well
2. Check the automatic drainage valve is clean
3. Check whether the hull is damaged
4. Take off the floor, make the boat even on the floor, and insert the water into the boat. If there is water in the ground, it shows this boat is leaking!

Repair method
If you find there is any place for leaking air or water, please clean this place. Then cut a circle from the raw material. The diameter of the circle is larger about 2.5cm than the leaking air or water place. After cleaning the surrounding of the leaking place and the circle, you could put the glue on the both two parts. When the glue is dry, please connect these two parts tightly. There should be no bubble between these two parts. You are allowed to use this boat, until the repair place has been dried for 24 hours.

Note: the repair should be done in a dry environment; the air humidity cannot be higher than 60%.

Maintenance

Due to the boat is made of 18oz PVC coated fire retardant tarpaulin, it doesn’t need much maintenance. When you need to fold the inflatable boat, you don’t even use the talcum powder. Additionally, when you find those stains, such as oil and tar, which are hard to deal with, you can use the thinner to get rid of them. Then please make it clean with soap and water. What’s more, you should clean the boat surface using water, if you have used a thinner,

Besides, the transom, wooden chair and floor are made from combined plates and coated with waterproof painting. Please always check whether the waterproof painting is damaged. If it is, please paint it again immediately, in case that the combined plates will be damaged by water. When you don’t use the inflatable boat, we kindly suggest you using the tarp to cover up the ship, which can prevent irradiation from the sun and adhesion from the dust.

Collection and storage about the inflatable boat

When you don’t want to use the boat for a long time, please pack the boat away.Using the water to clean the dirt and sand is the reasonable way. After the boat is dry, please pack them away. Taking off the air valve and making the air empty in the air bag, then you could take out the floor and aluminum alloy folder. Now, please fold the float hose towards the inside boat and make it the same wide as the transom. After folding the cone-shaped tube behind the transom, you could fold the boat from transom. Of course, you could tie up a rope on the outside of the inflatable boat, in order to save the volume. Finally, please put away the boat and accessories.

Suggestion:
1. Whenever, all the passengers in the inflatable boat should carry life-saving vests.
2. Please notice the weather condition, in case of the safety of yourself and the waste of the fuel material.
3. Don’t forget the important documents, such as the sailing map and certificate.
4. Please carry the accessories of boat, such as repair kits, emergency box and foot pump.

In short, when you use the inflatable boat, it cannot exceed the max loading person, loading weight and horse power of motor.
During this hot summer, inflatable boat will bring you limitless fun. More information about inflatable boats please visit Top Inflatable Boat (http://www.topinflatableboat.com/). The Top Inflatable Boat Manufacturer form China. Enjoy it.

What’s inflatable?

An inflatable is an object that can be inflated with a gas, usually with air, but hydrogen, helium and nitrogen are also used. One of several advantages of an inflatable is that it can be stored in a small space when not inflated, since inflatables depend on the presence of a gas to maintain their size and shape. Function fulfillment per mass used compared with non-inflatable strategies is a key advantage. Stadium cushions, impact guards, vehicle wheel inner tubes, and emergency air bags employ the inflatable principle. Inflation occurs through several strategies: pumps, ram-air, billowing, and suction.

Examples
Typical examples of an inflatable include the inflatable boat, the balloon, the airship, furniture, kites, and numerous air-filled swimming pool toys. Air beams as as structural elements are finding increasing applications. Balloons are inflatables.

Smaller-scale inflatables (such as pool toys) generally consist of one or more “air chambers”, which are hollow enclosures bound by a soft and flexible airtight material (such as vinyl), which a gas can enter into or leave from through valves (usually one on each air chamber). The design dependence upon an enclosed pocket of gas leads to a need for a very durable surface material and/or ease of repair of tears and holes on the material, since a puncture or tear will result in the escape of the gas inside (a leak) and the deflation of the inflatable, which depends on the gas’s pressure to hold its form. Detectable leaks can be caused by holes (from punctures or tears) on the material, the separating of seams, the separating of valve parts, or an improperly shut or improperly closing valve. Even if an inflatable possesses no macroscopic leaks, the gas inside will usually diffuse out of the inflatable, albeit at a much slower rate, until equilibrium is reached with the pressure outside the inflatable.

Many inflatables are made of material that does not stretch upon inflation; a notable exception of this is the balloon, whose rubber stretches greatly when inflated.

The airship is usually inflated with helium as it is lighter than air and does not burn unlike hydrogen airships such as the Hindenburg.

Inflatables are also used for the construction of specific sports pitches, military quick-assembly tents, camping tent air beams, and noise makers. Inflatable aircraft including the Goodyear Inflatoplane have been used. Inflation by dynamic ram-air is providing wings for hang gliding and paragliding.

Inflatables came very much into the public eye as architectural and domestic object when synthetic materials became commonplace. Iconic structures like the US Pavillion at the 1970 Osaka Expo by Davis and Brody and Victor Lundy’s travelling pavillion for the Atomic Energy Commission popularized the idea that inflatables can be a way to build large structures with very extendend interior spans without pillars. These great hopes for inflatable structures would later be dashed by the many practical difficulties faced by inflatable buildings, such as climatization, safety, sensitivity to wind and fire proofing that, currently, restrict their use to very specific circumstances.

The DVD Ant Farm has directions for making your own inflatables, using plastic bags and an iron. The low technological barrier to building inflatables is further lowered by DIY instruction sets like the Inflatocookbook.

A patent was granted in Australia in 2001 for a “Manually portable and inflatable automobile” (Australian Patent Number 2001100029), however no known practical form of this type of inflatable has yet been commercialised.

Large scale low-pressure inflatables are often seen at festivals as decorations or inflatable games. These are made out of rip stop nylon and have a constant flow of air from a blower inflating them.

In some cases, an inflatable roof is added to an otherwise traditional structure: the biggest example in the world is currently the BC Place Stadium in Vancouver, British Columbia. Another example can be found in the Roman amphitheater of Nîmes.

Inflatables for entertainment
The original inflatable game was the Moonwalk (bounce house). Today there are a wide variety of inflatable games that come in all shapes and sizes. Many inflatable games put people in head to head competition with other people such as the bungee run and gladiator joust. There are also several inflatable obstacle courses available. Because of their large size, most obstacle courses consist of two or more inflatables connected together.

There are also several variations on sports games which are made portable thanks to inflatables. A sports cage is an inflatable cage that holds up a backdrop that resembles a sport (e.g. baseball, American football, soccer, golf) in which you throw, toss, hit or kick a ball at a marked spot on the backdrop. The cage not only holds the backdrop but keeps balls from flying everywhere. Some sports cages come with a radar gun that will tell you the speed of your throw or kick.
