Re: Pressure gauge accuracy

Getting ready for team outing this weekend, and noticed the pressure gauge is reading at 3 psi even not connected to the pump yet. Anyone experienced this before? is my gauge got stuck? I was fine last year when put away in the garage. Any suggestion? The same thing happened to me last week. I've o...

Dropstitch Tacoing

I've got an Expedition Elite, and even with the dropstitch floor inflated to the full 6 PSI I'm getting some severe tacoing on flat water, which gets even worse when going over waves. In calm conditions the kayak bends about 10 degrees either side of my torso, increasing when paddling into waves. No...

Re: Smaller alternative for air pump?

In the last 9 years, has anyone found a small yet effective pump that can be easily stowed under the deck? The valve attachments are rather specific so the connectors on the hose need to be the same as the ones AE uses, and it's made even more difficult by the newer boats needing higher pressures. I...

Air Pump as a Bilge Pump

In the interest of having one less item to take with me on trips... Has anyone tried using the AE pump (with gauge) as a bilge pump? Is it effective? Will it damage the pump? I'd just try it myself, but I don't want to run water through it before I know whether or not it will damage anything. Much b...

Re: Is the non-DS Expedition still being made?

It turned out to be a 2018 XE. I'm happy with it, though since I'll be doing a lot of portaging, lifting it the first time made me wish I could have gotten something with dropstitch rigidity and cargo capacity that weighed as much as the Ultralite. Sadly you can't have everything. :D Just out of cur...

Re: Is the non-DS Expedition still being made?

Thank you.

Was the change made for the 2019 model, or were the 18's (or earlier) DS only?

Is the non-DS Expedition still being made?

Has the non-drop stitch version of the Expedition been removed and the DS floor is now standard? I ask because the links for the basic Expedition now show information for the Expedition Elite. The reason I ask is I can get a really good deal on a new Expedition, which I assume are the 2019 model bec...
