I always try to think of everything but that never occured to me. I have also debated in my head over which configuration to set my inflatable. Automatic or manual. I currently keep it at automatic. I wonder if it would matter that much in an upside down boat at midnight. I don't remember that being covered in my ASA courses. Yikes!
