Was too good to be true. The left bladder deflated over night. Have to get it returned for a refund.

You sure its not just the valve ? I have one of those and its a pain to get them tightened up right.

Otherwise a good tube, very light when packed I take mine on foreign trips as the sparton is a bit heavy for 20kg luggage limits.

Sunkistbob-SKB It was the Lineaeffe Belly Boat for 70

It looked just the ticket. I will give it another go tonight and hope my overnight bladder issues do not reoccur any tips to get the valves to shut right?

Still need to get a manual life jacket, fins and I also want a deeper fish finder but they will be post Christmas goodies

Thank you for the hints about the valves... Got them nice and tight.

I can now confirm that I managed to keep them up all night and had 0 bladder issues.

So no need to return the boat. Next up lets find a barging life jacket that not a no brand from china as I don't want to trust my life to a 17 life jacket off eBay.

Avoid the auto inflating ones....they have an alarming habit of going off when you don't need them to when sat close to the water. I have pictures somewhere of two associates sat in tubes half strangled by them following accidental detonations.

You may like to consider a kayak type life preserver with foam as it removes any need for servicing. I've used one for years and have tested it. I bobbed about like a cork face up like you're supposed to.
