You simply grab the cockpit of the kayak and pull yourself up like youre getting out of a swimming pool. This makes an inflatable kayak very convenient for snorkeling or swimming. Before getting back in it is easy to dump out any water that gets aboard. Some inflatable boats are even self bailing. Another misconception about inflatable kayaks is that they have very poor maneuverability. People think you would have very little control in an inflatable kayak. This isnt the case with newer inflatable kayaks though. Many of these inflatable boats have optional foot controlled rudders to make for easy turning without missing a stroke.
Next you should tightly secure the blower(s) to the inflatable tube(s) and close any other inflation tubes. Now you should check to see if the location has an electricity outlet with a GFI box. Refer back to the blower manufacturers owners manual to check the correct electricity requirements extension cord type generator information etc. Now once the electricity requirements have been satisfied you can inflatable the product. After the product is fully inflated you will need to fasten all of the tie downs using the correct required stakes to anchor the inflatable into position.
So good luck and remember to follow ALL the safety rules and regulations supplied to you and any you recognize from experience.
