Inflatable / February 14, 2019 / Laetitia Beauchesne.
If youve owned one of the older cheaper style inflatable boats you know you also have to invest in repair patches or a roll of duct tape. New high quality inflatable kayaks are changing peoples impressions of inflatable boats. New inflatable crafts are made from puncture and abrasion resistant rubber often reinforced with polyester fabric. This is much stronger than the PVC material used for most cheap inflatable boats. Under normal circumstances it is quite unlikely that you would puncture these new rubber materials. Even if you did most inflatable kayaks have at least three separate air chambers.
This type of inflatable company is easy to operate but is designed for small-scale growth. For instance renting an inflatable to a household for a childs birthday party typically only happens on weekends and the largest inflatable you can buy is one that fits nicely into a large backyard. Bouncers are the most popular inflatables to buy in this situation and ball pits are a secondary choice. Since this type of business only functions on the weekends and holidays (for the most part) this is a good investment for families who are looking to make a little extra money part time.
These are a step above the event rentals but with the same basic concept. Instead of renting inflatables and choosing some employees to man them this company targets specific carnivals fairs and public events like the California State Fair. They set up a permanent location at these events pop up a large inflatable and people purchase tickets to enjoy the inflatable area for a certain period of time. For this company the wear and tear on the inflatables is less sporadic and more of a full time concern. However they make a constant stream of money during the events unlike the one-day rental options.
The fabrics that produce inflatable boats are very light in weight. For Sea Eagle inflatable dinghy SE 9 it is only weight 38lbs for the boat and 74lbs for boat floorboard and motor mount(For your info SE 9 could be loaded with 1200lbs or 5 adults).Using the comparison of as light as air in inflatable boats is no over-exaggerated. The light weight of inflatable boats makes inflatable boats launch easier. Only 2 adults are needed to carry out the inflatable boat from water after using. The light weight of inflatable boats just makes people love inflatable boats more.
