Inflatable / February 8, 2019 / Sydney De La Ronde
But as with most things in life things change. In the last five years most U.S. "manufacturers" have thrown in the towel and are no longer making their own Inflatables. Theyre now importing China made Inflatables and passing them off as "Made in the U.S.A." In addition a new breed of internet phonies are posing as "manufacturers" and selling "China made Inflatables" or acting as a distributor for some other inflatable company importing from China. The fact of the matter is there are only a few manufacturers left that still build their entire product line of Inflatables right here in the good old U.S.A. Its more expensive but far superior in durability. And yes in spite of what you have been told there is a big difference in Safety Quality Craftsmanship.
Besides transportation issue the convenience of inflatable boats brings no headache to storage issue as well. After being deflated and folded nicely inflatable boats just size like a stack of clothes. Whenever you need inflatable boats you can just take out straight from your car boot. Inflating them with a foot pump just take around 30 minutes (maximum) and if you are using an electric pump 15 minutes (maximum) is what you need to enjoy boating. Advantage No.2: Stable Inflatable boats are built with 2 large buoyancy tubes on the side and a flat floor in between of them.
Inflatable Kayaks are Easy to Use What is easier than carrying your kayak right to the waters edge and inflating it with a foot pump within five to ten minutes? Most people have pumped up an air mattress at least once as a child. Then after it is filled to the appropriate air pressure set your inflatable kayak in the water and get in like any other kayak. You can straddle the kayak and then sit down. Or you can place your paddle across the kayak to brace yourself as you get in. Kayaks are very stable but with inflatable kayaks it can be much easier to get back in if you fall out.
