IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Follow all the Safety and Operating Instructions. If you don't follow these instructions, it may cause
the boat to overturn or explode and result in drowning.
1. Do not exceed the maximum recommended number of persons. Regardless of the number of
persons on board, the total weight of persons and equipment must never exceed the maximum
recommended load. Always use the seats /seating spaces provided.
2. When loading the craft, never exceed the maximum recommended load: Always load the craft
carefully and distribute loads appropriately to maintain design trim (approximately level). Avoid
placing heavy weights high up.
NOTE: The maximum recommended load includes the weight of all persons onboard, all
provisions and personal effects, any equipment not included in the light craft mass, cargo (if any)
and all consumable liquids (water, fuel, etc.).
3. When using the boat, life saving devices such as life jackets and buoys should be pre-inspected
and used at all times.
4. Before every use, carefully inspect all boat components including air-chambers, grab ropes,
oars, and air valves, to ensure everything is in good condition and tightly secured. If you find any
damage, please stop to repair it.
5. Buckets, water scoops and air pumps should always be available in case of air leakage or if the
boat takes on water.
6. When the boat is in motion, all passengers must remain seated at all times to avoid falling
overboard. Keep the boat balanced. Uneven distribution of persons or load in the boat may
cause the boat to overturn and result in drowning.
7. Use the craft in sheltered water, up to 300m (984 feet). Be careful with natural factors such as
wind, tide waters and tidal waves. BE AWARE OF OFFSHORE WINDS AND CURRENTS.
Always wear a lifejacket!
8. If one chamber is punctured when the boat is in the water, it may be necessary to fully inflate the
other air chamber to prevent the boat from sinking.
9. Be careful when landing on the shore. Sharp and rough objects such as rocks, cement, shells,
glass, etc. may puncture the boat. To avoid damage, do not drag the boat on rough surfaces.
10. The boat is intended for beach use, short-time and short-distance cruising.
11. Be aware of the potential harmful effects of liquids such as battery acid, oil or petrol. The liquids
may damage your boat.
12. Inflate according to the numbered air chamber and rated pressure of the boat, or it will cause
over-inflation and potential and boat explosion. Exceeding the data given on the capacity plate
may cause the craft to be damaged, overturn and lead to drowning.
13. If you use the tow rings to tow the boat, go slowly to avoid over-towing as damage may occur.
14. Know how to operate a boat. Check in your local area for information and/or training as needed.
Inform yourself about local regulations and dangers related to boating and/or other water

Assembling of the boat
NEVER USE HIGH PRESSURE AIR TO INFLATE INFLATABLES. THIS CAN DAMAGE YOUR
PRODUCT AND VOID YOUR WARRANTY
1. Spread out the boat on level ground.
2. Assemble the removable fin to the bottom of the boat (Fig.1). Make sure the curvature of the fin is
pointed towards the back end of the boat.
NOTE: Assemble the fin before inflation and also disassemble it after deflation.
NOTE: To avoid damage to the removable fin, do not enter shallow water.

• Inflate the air chambers with a HAND air pump.
An inflation scale is provided with the product.
Inflate the product until the printed scale is charged up to the same level as that of the supplied
scale. (refer the belowing Table and Illustration)
Caution: Under and over-inflation of the boat will result in safety hazards. It is better to check the
pressure of the boat each time before using. If you use other pressure gauge, the boat pressure
should not be more than the data given on the builder's plate.
• Never stand on or rest objects on the boat during inflation.
• Inflate bottom chamber and other accessories such as seat until it is stiff to the touch but NOT hard.

Seat and footrest assembly
Assemble the belt to the seat and tie to the boat.
Put the inflated footrest into the front of the boat, make sure the footrest not entangle the feet of the
occupants in the event of a capsize.
NOTE: All drawings for illustration purpose only. May not reflect actual product.
1. Keep all accessories for future use.
2. Carefully clean the boat using a mild soap with clean water.
Note: Do not use acetone, acid, and/or alkaline solutions.
3. Use a cloth to gently dry all surfaces.
Note: Do not dry the product in direct sunlight. Also, never dry with equipment such as electric
blowers. Doing so will cause damage and shorten the boat's life span.
4. Deflate the hull chambers. Deflate all the hull chambers at the same time so the air-pressure
drops together. This will prevent damage from occurring to the boat inner structures. Next deflate
the floor and seat.
5. Fold the boat from front to back to remove additional air. You can also use a
pump to drain any remaining air.
1. If there is a small puncture, repair it according to the instruction on repair
2. If the hole is too big to be repaired with the provided patch, purchase a Bestway repair kit or send
the boat to a speciality shop to make the repair.
