I took the floor bladder out to make a repair my straitedge 2 kayak. Is there an easy way to put the floor bladder back in? I shoved it into the pocket for it and added air but it was a pain to do and I don't know if it is bunched up or fully expanded.
Yes, I did the arm and leg push but am wondering if there is a better way. Would adding a little air help? A full length zipper would be helpful. Also using the same valve on all of the bladders would be an improvement. I love the spring valve and the way it works with the AE Double action hand pump with pressure gauge but the Boston valve, which is a nice idea in the you can fill it with the one way valve and deflate with the larger opening, doesn't work well with the pump and you can't tell the pressure due to the one way filling valve.why don't we have the spring valve on all of the bladders? Can we get a floor bladder with a spring valve?
Thanks for taking my suggestion seriously. Let me know if you do as i would buy one. I would say after reading posts on this forum that it would eliminate a large percentage of questions about how much air to put in the floor. By being able to use the pressure gauge and fill it to 1.0psi and know it is at that pressure takes all of the guess work out of it. I think this would be a best seller for those who have one of your boats.
