Inflatable / January 15, 2019 / Searlait Bureau
So good luck and remember to follow ALL the safety rules and regulations supplied to you and any you recognize from experience. The fastest growing trend in the kayaking industry is clearly the use of inflatable kayaks. Todays technology makes these inflatable crafts more rugged and maneuverable while remaining lightweight and portable. Even seasoned kayakers are gradually making the switch to inflatable kayaks. Inflatable Kayaks are Extremely Portable If you have ever owned a hard-shell kayak you realize how difficult it can be to transport your kayak. You have little alternative to strapping your kayak to the roof of your vehicle.
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.
Once all anchors are fastened and the inflatable is fully inflated the delivery person can now check to make sure that wires are not causing a tripping hazard there are no sharp objects protruding near or on the inflatable there are no overhead power lines and so forth. Making sure every precautions are taken to ensure safety. Most often than not an injury will occur when a delivery person gets too careless about setting up the inflatable and doesnt follow all the safety steps. Inflatable products should never be used during certain weather conditions. Winds over 20-25 miles per hour can cause the inflatable to move or if the speed is high enough to make it airborne.
