• Drill and Bit – Size 3/16”
• Screwdriver and adjustable wrench. (All other parts supplied)
1. Slide aluminium tracks onto the bags so that aluminium flats are facing each other as per sketch. Then centralize bag on tracks.
2. Place bag and track in a position suitable for your hull design, being no less than 20mm down from gunwale and approximately 80mm in from transom (as per sketch). Keep in mind Air-O-Float Stabilizers should be clear of the water when the boat is on the plane (at speed). Make sure tracks are not more than 230mm apart between slots (refer sketch).
3. Drill and bolt both ends of tracks. Now slide bags off and drill 8 holes in each track and bolt on. (Be careful not to drill in a position where a bolt cannot be tightened e.g. where seats are located)
4. Fit inner tubes and push value base through the rear of the outer bag. Make sure the bladder is well back in the bag so that it fills out the back corners. Screw in one-way value and cap whilst holding the value base to prevent twisting of the bladder.
5. Inflate the bags slightly (just enough to give basic shape) and slide onto rails.
1. Do not over inflate. The correct pressure is about what you are able to pump up with your mouth. (About the firmness of a party balloon)
2. You will find that in different temperate conditions you will need to inflate or deflate as required. This is particularly important when the boat is sitting on the trailer in the sun and the pressure in the bags becomes excessive.
3. It is important not to travel too far with the bags deflated as excessive flapping can delaminate the material.
