bag the foot pump(except in the field)..Get a cheap 12volt one and use that most of the time off your vehicle when you can... ;)

The 12 vt pump I got for it won't inflate it tight enough. Even with the foot pump I inflate it until the pressure bypasses on the pump open up. And the foot pump is just as fast. I will get a smaller hand pump for it to take along that wont take up as much space as the foot pump does.

I was looking at the foldcat a while back and found this pump. I think it is probably ideal for any inflatable.

MB-100 high speed electric pump is specifically designed for higher pressure inflatable boats. Hooks up directly to a car battery using a 5' extension cord with alligator clips. Just set the pressure gauge to the desired pressure and turn on


The boat was too heavy for me so now I have a carbon canoe on my wish list.

I just got my wife a Sevylor Rio for Christmas and a kayak paddle since she will be done with school in the spring. Then she can come with my daughter and I on our trips.

This vid shows a lot about the Rio and the Colorado since they are made the exact same way.

I'll have to see some documentation first along with some references as well as a background search. :DP:

My wife is currently a paramedic but at 46 it's becoming a tough job. So she is finishing up her bachelors in health care admin. She most likely will end up as a supervisor for the same company she works for. The severe obese people seem to be the primary utilizers of EMS. When it takes 8 people to lift someone into the back of an ambulance you know it's out of control. I got out of the profession 18 years ago just because of the 24 hr shifts and al the BS that you deal with.

Go up on the mountain and check with Santa, he knows who's been naughty or nice :lol:

I read on Primalfires you've got a bad lumbar disc or something or other. that must have slowed you down a bit. :o

Congratulations go out to your wife for her graduation and being able to be with family when you go outside and play :D

I had a degenerative L4,5 disk but I had several spinal steroid epidurals over two years. I also started using high doses of multi-spectrum amino acids and the back has been doing great for almost two years now. Our joints will heal and regenerate but we have to give them the building blocks. Age and poor diet shorts us out of amino acids. We eat the proteins but we don't do a good job of breaking them down into aminos that our cells utilize.

So I did my homework and research and it seems to be working good. It took well over six months but I stayed committed to it. Eventually at a certain point I will need a synthetic disk. My goal is to put that off as long as possible.
