Using your Inflatable Boat safety Precautions
2019/4/3 16:27:16

1. Rowing
The Transom Boats are designed as motorboats, but they can be rowed if the engine fails. Take some time to practice rowing so you will be prepared in the unlikely event of an engine failure. The oars are attached to swivelling oarlocks / oarclasps which allow for easy rowing. Snap the rear section of the oar out of the oarclasp and use the forward oarlock to help row. You can also remove the oar from the forward oarlock by unscrewing the blue plastic nut on the oar.
2. Motoring & Safety
The Transom Boats are responsive and quick under power, yet turn and track very well. All boats have their unique handling characteristics, so take time to familiarize yourself with how your maneuvers in various conditions. Basic seamanship is beyond the scope of this owners manual, but we would like to go over a few fundamentals. It is your responsibility to be aware of and comply with all relevant safety regulations. In all water sports you should have reasonable swimming ability. Although your Transom Boats have been used in ocean expeditions, we dont recommend using the Transom Boats out of sight of land. If you are going out in open waters, you should stay reasonably close to other boats and always carry flares and a good supply of fresh water. A marine band transceiver and a GPS receiver will provide added security on your journey. Always respect the sea and the weather, as both can change rapidly and have surprised even the most seasoned mariner. Always carry enough Personal Flotation Devices. Not only is it the law, but from our point of view, it is just plain foolish not to have PFDs for everyone aboard. Please use U.S. Coast Guard or C.E. approved life jackets, as this is your assurance that the life jackets can provide sufficient buoyancy in the water. We strongly suggest that all boaters enroll in one of the excellent water safety courses offered by the Power Squadron or Coast Guard Auxiliary in your area.
Some Other points To Remember
․ After 2 or 3 days there may be a small decrease of pressure due to temperature change. If so, add a few
pumps of air to each chamber.
․ Before undertaking a long trip, inflate the boat for a full 24 hours to be sure all chambers are completely airtight.
․ Do not allow children to drive the boat unsupervised by adults.
․ Avoid sharp objects when coming to dock or shore.
․ Always bring your oars along snapped in place.
․ When you see water have come into the boat, check the following:

  ① Is the drain valve open?
  ② Is the diaphragm in the drain valve working properly?
  ③ Has it rained recently?
  ④ Is there a hole in the floor?
․ Regarding cleaning & storage:

  ① Hose off sand and dirt and let dry before packing away.
  ② Do not use harsh chemical cleaners.
  ③ Do not store in extreme temperatures(i.e. over 150F/below - 10F).
  ④ Store in a clean and dry place.
