This will give you lots of confidence when you go out and only worry about having fun. You did real good.
That is an excellent Idea, I know that one of the seats still has a good seal because when I pulled the plug yesterday it exhausted a lot of hot air. (Built up pressure from sitting in the sun) They started making this boat with a bow air tank that mine doesn't have, what type of foam would you recommend? And how do you attach it?
