My dinghy needs a pump

This dinghy came with the boat I bought about 4 months ago. This is the first chance I have had to inflate it. I thought it would be an old throwaway, but it is in beautiful shape! It did not come with a pump, so I am looking for recommendations. 12V vs. foot pump? Are there specific attachments? The only branding that I can see is "Sloop 22". The first language on the hull is Italian with English about three languages later, so I assume it is Italian. Anyone familiar with this brand?

P.S. I usually don't play with my dinghy in the living room, but the wife is out of town.

Re: My dinghy needs a pump

if it didn't come with a pump, how did you inflate it?

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:

Re: My dinghy needs a pump

Petar and Mobius, you are nailed it. Thanks to the shopvac exhaust port, I got it up to floating-worthy PSI. I am leaving it overnight to see if it holds.

Jones, I'll give you a pass on the in-photo clues since you have had a bad few days. Sorry about your fuzzy friend. My pad foot is 10 years old and I can't bear to think of that day in the future.
