Re: New Air Bags

YES Very sad indeed
Among others we all owe a lot to their development of the sport
I was hanging on in a time warp until my son prodded me into the
Newer poly boats. A very grateful dad I might say

Re: New Air Bags

Very good question
I first tried carrying a very small Phillips screw driver to depress the center of the valve
That sucked. The only solution I found was to unscrew the valve
Which I say sucked but not as much.
Would love to hear of a better way also
