Transporting and Installing The Inflatable Tubes
Transporting the full-length inflatable tubes is very easy – When partially deflated, they fit perfectly in the hulls of the W700.
Each inflatable tube is attached to the boat by 4 carabiners: One at each end, and two in the middle. Inflating is easy through the wide-diameter mouth valve. No need to use a pump, and it takes just a couple of minutes.
