Inflatable / February 17, 2019 / Melodie Mainville
When speak about the advantages of inflatable boats it just cant be finished within 10 pages. Believe me inflatable boats just have their unique advantages over those traditional boats. I have shortened and categorized the advantages of inflatable boats into 8 categories which are: Advantage No.1: Flexible As known the very first advantage of inflatable boats is their flexibility. What I mean here is inflatable boats could be deflated and kept in your private car boot. You can bring inflatable boats with you wherever you go. They just do not need boat trailers or huge truck to be transported.
You could easily paddle on remote lakes or rivers. Or how about taking your kayak on vacation with you? Bring it in your luggage on the plane and you could be kayaking almost anywhere in the world. That would be pretty difficult to do with a hard-shell kayak. You could take an inflatable kayak on a city bus or bicycle to the water. During off season the kayak would take up minimal storage space. Inflatable Kayaks are Tough and Durable When most people think of an inflatable kayak they picture a cheaply made plastic boat for kids. They picture a kayak that would burst from hitting the smallest rock or branch.
Inflatables should also never be used during rain or thunderstorm. Playing in an inflatable during a rain or when it is wet can create the surface to be extremely slippery and thus lead to a participant injury. Also you dont want to use the inflatables when the weather is extremely hot. Inflatables can get pretty hot especially during the summer heat and thus cause heat stroke or worse. Since inflatables take a lot of energy out of participants it is vital to keep participants hydrated so they do not experience dehydration or heat stroke. The person renting the inflatable should ALWAYS be trained and instructed how the inflatable works so there is no confusion about the functionality and how its supposed to perform.
