What are the different types of inflation systems and valves used for inflatable boats, as well as the capacity of the air chambers?

Inflatable boats require an inflation system to keep them afloat, which include both the valves and air chambers. There are a few different types of valves used for inflatable boats, most commonly the Boston valve, Halkey-Roberts valves, and Leafield valves, each of which have their own uses and advantages. The size of the air chambers depends on the size of the boat, and it’s important to choose the right size to ensure that the boat is properly inflated and can support the weight of its passengers. Once the air chambers are properly inflated, they must be monitored regularly with a pressure gauge to make sure that they remain inflated. With the right inflation system and valves, you’ll be ready to take your inflatable boat out on your next adventure!
