Premature Inflation

A little more info.

We did have one (out of 3) "pill" automatic inflatable WM premature inflate in our boat locker but after 5 years, but the the "shelf life" on these things is 2-4 years, depending on Vendor. The Hydrostatic ones are less likely to premature inflate.


If you liked my advice/response, give me some rep points. If you didn't......well what do you expect, it was free.
